COLUMBUS – State Representative Gary Click (R-Vickery) announced the Save Adolescents from Experimentation (SAFE) Act and Save Women’s Sports Act is on its way to the governor’s desk following its passage by the Ohio Senate and concurrence of the Ohio House of Representatives on Wednesday.

“I am extremely grateful that the Senate has taken this great step and that my colleagues in the House concurred with the Senate’s common-sense compromises,” Click said. “Governor DeWine has established that his priority is to keep Ohio’s women and children safe, and I am confident that this bill does that.”

House Bill 68 protects children who are experiencing gender dysphoria from harmful irreversible sex change procedures including chemical castration through puberty blockers, harmful opposite sex hormones that set the endocrine system at odds with their DNA, and invasive surgical procedures. It also includes the Save Women’s Sports Act, which provides safeguards for women’s-only athletic competitions from kindergarten through college.

The bill now heads to the governor’s desk where it will await his signature.
