California adds an 11th state to its travel ban. No taxpayer-funded trips to Iowa

Attorney General Xavier Becerra on Friday extended California’s ban on taxpayer-funded trips to an 11th state, adding Iowa to the list based on the Midwestern state’s passage of a law that removed gender protections under Medicaid.

Becerra’s order means public employees and college students may not travel to Iowa under provisions of a 2016 California law.

Twelve years ago, Iowa’s Legislature made gender identity a protected characteristic under its Civil Rights Act, which prohibited refusing service to or discriminating against people based on their gender identity preferences.

In March 2019, the state’s Supreme Court ruled the protection extended to gender transition surgeries under the state’s Medicaid program. Two months later, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a bill banning Medicaid spending on the surgeries.

So, having taxpayers cover the cost of chopping off your dick is a human right?

These states need to slap back... best way is to target State Employees going to Conferences in California.

"Iowa will no longer allow any state funding for librarians, sanitation workers, teachers, etc. to attend Conferences in California."

It was all pretenses.

CA politicians don’t represent even Californians. There is a reason all those things aren’t even for public vote, because it loses here too.

CA is ran by crazy mentally ill people.
