State health officials Wednesday released a ruling from an administrative law judge that permanently revoked the license of Ranch for Kids. Ranch for Kids was a private therapeutic facility for children in northwest Montana. Montana Public Radio’s Aaron Bolton is here to walk us through this development.

The state health department is proposing changing its rules so Montanans who are intersex or transgender will be able to more easily change the gender status on their birth certificates. A public comment period on that opened yesterday.
