The 132nd General Assembly has concluded and this bill is no longer active.

Ohio’s HB658 is the latest attempt by anti-LGBTQ extremists in Ohio to codify explicit second-class citizenship for LGBTQ people, only this time, they are targeting transgender youth.

HB658 (1) requires school staff to inform parents if a child wishes to be “treated in a manner opposite” of their “biological sex” and (2) requires written authorization from birth parents and all guardians––including non-custodial parents––before trans-related medical care is issued and prohibits the state from taking action when parents refuse to provide medically-necessary care.
