Democratic Arizona Gov. Katie Hobbs has signed an executive order to nix a ban on coverage of gender-transition surgery for state employees, a move that means state workers’ healthcare plans will no longer be barred from covering the controversial procedures.

“The Department of Administration shall remove the Exclusion from the State’s healthcare plan as soon as practicable and in compliance with State law,” the order declares. The order says that “since 2017, the Plan has excluded coverage for ‘gender reassignment surgery.'”

“Our LGBTQ+ community should never have to face hate and discrimination, and I will do everything in my power to fight for full equality,” Hobbs said, according to a press release. “The State is leading by example on this issue, and we will continue working until Arizona is a place where every individual can participate equally in our economy and our workforce without fear of discrimination or exclusion.”

Hobbs has also signed an executive order that declares, “To the greatest extent permissible under law, State Agencies shall not use State or federal resources to promote, support, or enable any practice or treatment on minors known to be a form of ‘conversion therapy,’ including authorizing funds to reimburse for medical or mental healthcare known to be in connection with the practice of ‘conversion therapy’ on minors.”
