Birth certificates; change of sex. Eliminates the requirement that a person provide a certified copy of an order of a court of competent jurisdiction indicating that his sex has been changed by medical procedure for amendment of a birth certificate to reflect a change of sex and authorizes the Board of Health to adopt regulations setting forth the requirements necessary for amendment of a birth certificate to reflect change of sex. The bill provides that such requirements may include a requirement that the person requesting the amendment submit an affidavit provided by a health care provider from whom the person has received treatment stating that the person has undergone clinically appropriate treatment for the purpose of gender transition but shall not include any requirement for evidence or documentation of any medical procedure.
