New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is backing a bill to prevent the removal of transgender service members from the military.
The Democrat sponsored a bipartisan bill with Republican Senator Susan Collins of Maine.
President Trump announced plans for a transgender military ban in July.
The bill from Gillibrand and Collins also requires a transgender military student from the Department of Defense to be presented to Congress.
