A controversial bill that would have penalized doctors who provided gender-affirming care to transgender minors or made referrals for that care died on the House floor Tuesday.

The Montana House on Tuesday voted 51-49 against the bill after losing the support of five Republicans who voted for it the day prior.

“This is a huge victory,” Caitlin Borgmann, the executive director of the ACLU of Montana, said in a statement.

“Montanans spoke up clearly that anti-trans laws have no place in Montana, and lawmakers listened. Trans youth — and trans people — deserve to live with dignity and respect,” said Borgmann. “Instead of stigmatizing and harming trans youth, our laws should support them.”
