HB 396 (2023)

Protect differentiation between male and female sexes


Revises the laws governing sex changes on birth certificates and driver's licenses, adding that nothing in state law "is intended to prohibit any public entity from differentiating between the male and female sexes in athletic competitions, criminal incarceration, or places of intimate privacy."

The House rewrote the bill. The amended bill adds a new section to the state's anti-discrimination laws that says it is legal to "classify based on biological sex" for bathrooms, locker rooms, athletic events, prisons, treatment centers, etc.
