COLUMBUS - State Rep. Michael J. Skindell (D-Lakewood) today denounces the passage of the veto override for House Bill (HB) 68, anti-trans legislation, and DeWine’s proposed care restrictions on gender affirming care.

“This bill will endanger the lives of transgender youth all over Ohio,” said Rep. Skindell “How can we say that our duty as state legislators is to uphold freedom and equal rights, when we have endless state-sponsored bullying and targeted attacks on LGBTQIA+ youth in our state. This veto override is a slap in the face to every person who called, wrote emails, and came out to testify in opposition to this hateful bill.”

HB 68 was passed in both the Ohio House and Senate, but vetoed by Governor DeWine at the end of December 2023.

Governor DeWine issued an executive order on January 5, 2024 that further limits access to care.
