Skip to comments.California adds Iowa to 'travel ban' over refusal to fund gender transitions
Posted on 09/16/2019 6:50:01 PM PDT by Olog-hai
California announced last week that it has added Iowa to the list of states on its ever-expanding travel ban list because of that states new prohibition against funding gender-transition surgeries under Medicaid.
The announcement by state Attorney General Xavier Becerra means that as of Oct. 4, California will no longer offer taxpayer-funded trips to Iowa for any public employee or student at a state-run university.
Becerras authority came from a 2016 California law signed by then-Gov. Jerry Brown that bars state-funded travel to other states that undercut LGBT rights. The blacklist already included Alabama, Kentucky, North Carolina, Texas, Oklahoma and Mississippi.
Conservatives have called the law ineffective, inconveniencing, possibly unconstitutional and hypocritical. The states sports teams have turned to private funding to get around the restrictions, according to The Los Angeles Times.

I cancelled my yearly trip to California, tit for tat. It goes both ways.
Why should Iowa tax payers have to pay for killing unborn babies, anyway?
Do whatever you want, CA. I’ll NEVER set foot in your state AGAIN.
My record of NOT being in your state since 1982 stands firm!
In California they call it tit for tit because well... you know.
I wonder if it could be expanded to registered democrat voters moving from California to those states.
If you can’t even travel to those states why the heck are they allowed to permanently move?
I mean, pay for sex transitions.
Maybe all the californikating politicians could just stay home and clean their own streets.
So not only do they not get their gender transistion surgeries funded, they have to pay their own travel too? Pretty harsh, California.
Ok Iowans. Add californicate to your lists
You can hurt them FAR more.
What does a state have to do to get on this list? I am disappointed that so far Missouri hasn’t made the cut.
Ok, Iowa. Ban Cali from having any of your corn and they are not allowed to watch the History Cannel anymore or American Pickers.

How lucky can Iowa get.....
when was the last time you heard of a state gummit telling their citizens where they could travel?
Involuntary secession (expulsion) for the fruit-loop states.
That’s an amendment I’d support.
“Tolerance and inclusion” as demanded by the Nazis RATS.
California bullies other states, like China does neighboring countries. Two of a kind.
