LA: Far-right lawmaker, state GOP won't accept trans youth healthcare ban's defeat

In an act of political retribution, an ultra-conservative Louisiana lawmaker has attached an amendment to the bill of a fellow Republican who bucked the party line and voted to kill a proposed ban on gender-affirming healthcare for transgender youth.

Rep. Alan Seabaugh, R-Shreveport, proposed the amendment Thursday afternoon to Sen. Fred Mills legislation that seeks to expand telehealth services. The change Seabaugh wants would tie Mills’ telehealth measure to House Bill 648, the proposed ban on gender affirming healthcare put forward by Rep. Gabe Firment, R-Pollock.

Mills was the deciding vote against Firment’s bill Wednesday when it went before the Senate Health and Welfare Committee, which Mills chairs.

During House floor debate Thursday on Mills’ telehealth proposal, Rep. Barry Ivey, R-Central, asked whether Seabaugh’s amendment was germane to the bill.

1. They think it's a game, they think it's just about winning any way possible.
