Preemptive strike! Let’s stop this bill before it even gets a committee hearing. Minnesota says no to anti-trans legislation.
Contact MN Representative Joe Schomacker (R, District 22A), head of the Health & Human Services Reform committee. Express opposition to HR 1183, which would free health insurance companies from having to cover gender transition (Read more from Duluth News Tribune, 2/15/2017).
Script: I oppose HR 1183 and any bill that takes away transgender peoples’ access to health care. Do not give HR 1183 a hearing in the Health & Human Services Reform committee.
Schomacker: 651-296-5505, firstname.lastname@example.org
This bill is authored by Glenn Gruenhagen (R, District 18B) who is the vice-chair of the Health & Human Services Reform committee, so feel free to contact him as well.
