Iowa joins Alabama on California’s travel ban list

Iowa has been added to the list of states included in California’s growing travel ban.

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. The move comes after Iowa passed a ban against using Medicaid funds to pay for gender transition surgeries.

Iowa joins Alabama, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee and Texas on California’s banned list.

States were added to the travel ban due to anti-LGBT laws. In Alabama’s case, it was the passage of a law allowing adoption agencies in the state to follow faith-based policies, including the option to not place children with gay couples.
