House Bill 2673 is on its second reading. If passed, it would eliminate the requirement for courts to publicly post court orders changing name or gender identity. It also provides that court cases involving gender identity may be sealed.
The bill was requested by Basic Rights Oregon and is intended to give transgender Oregonians more privacy.
If passed, the bill will become operative on Jan. 1, 2018.
