DES MOINES — A bill that would have removed transgender people from the state’s civil rights law was stopped before it even got to a subcommittee.
The Associated Press reported on Thursday that State Rep. Steven Holt, Repubilican chairman of the state House Judiciary Committee, would not allow the bill to move forward.
“It’s dead,” Holt told the AP. “It just would have had a lot of unintended consequences.”
