For right wingnuts.
Representative Vicky Hartzler (r) offered an amendment to the defense authorization bill, barring the use of funds for transgender medical treatments:
Offered by Mrs. Hartzler of Missouri
At the end of subtitle A of title VII, add the following:
SEC. 704. PROHIBITION OF DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE MEDICAL TREATMENT RELATED TO GENDER TRANSITION.
Funds available to the Department of Defense may not be used to provide medical treatment (other than mental health treatment) related to gender transition to a person entitled to medical care under chapter 55 of title 10, United States Code.
Still tilting at those windmills.
The amendment failed:
