KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Missouri officials have ended the Republican attorney general’s emergency rule that would have placed limits on transgender care for minors and some adults.
The decision was announced Tuesday without explanation on the Missouri Secretary of State’s website. The website states: “This emergency rule ended on May 16, 2023.”
The rule would have required adults and children to undergo more than a year of therapy and meet other conditions before they could receive gender-affirming treatments such as puberty blockers, hormones and surgery.
Spokesman for Attorney General Andrew Bailey did not immediately return a message seeking comment.
