St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones

(The Center Square) – The day after Republican Missouri Attorney General Andrew Bailey confronted the Kansas City Board of Police Commissioners concerning enforcing pending legislation on transgender medical treatment, Democratic St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones signed an executive order promoting communication on the practice.

Bailey sent a letter on Wednesday to the commissioners regarding Senate Bill 49, legislation prohibiting health care providers from prescribing or administering cross-sex hormones or puberty-blocking drugs to a minor for a gender transition.
