ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Gov. Tim Walz took a step Wednesday morning he says will make Minnesota more welcoming for LGBTQ+ people.
The governor signed an executive order reaffirming existing rights for trans people in Minnesota to access gender-affirming care.
"As states across the country move to ban access to gender-affirming care, we want LGBTQ Minnesotans to know they will continue to be safe, protected, and welcome in Minnesota," Walz said. "In Minnesota, you will not be punished for seeking or providing medical care. This Executive Order delivers the urgent action that our LGBTQ Minnesotans deserve."
