Birth Certificate Bill Passes Senate Health, Sex Education Bill Deferred Until Friday

From Duke Aiona, Hawaii Family Advocates March 19, 2015

The following bill was heard in the Senate Health Committee yesterday so we are providing the votes.  Notated in RED below are the votes that we are disappointed with.  GREEN is a vote we appreciate.


HB 631 HD 2 Relating to Certificates of Birth.  This is the bill that would allow a transgendered person to change their birth certificate an affidavit from a licensed medical or licensed mental health provider attesting that the current birth certificate record does not align with the birth registrant's gender identity and that in the provider's professional opinion the birth registrant's sex designation should be changed accordingly.  The new certificate shall not be marked as amended and shall in no way reveal the original language changed by any amendment.  The Hawaii Family Advocates OPPOSES THIS BILL.

The Senate Health Committee passed the bill UNAMENDED

3 SUPPORT: Senator(s) Green, Baker, Ruderman;
