House committee votes against banning gay conversion therapy

New Hampshire wont ban gay conversion therapy for minors this year, after a House committee voted this week to hold back the bill.

In a 13-8 vote, the House Health, Human Services and Elderly Affairs committee retained the legislation Tuesday over concerns that it limits parental rights and counseling for youth working through their sexuality, members said.

The decision marks another setback for LGBT-rights groups, which earlier this year saw the Republican-led House defeat a bill to expand anti-discrimination protections for transgender people.

Its another year to go without protections for people, said Democratic Rep. Renny Cushing, a co-sponsor on both pieces of legislation.

6. It was HB 587,

but I could not find the names of the representatives that voted to retain the bill in committee.

I looked at two sites:
https://legiscan.com/NH/bill/HB587/2017
http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/house/committees/housebillsincommitteebillstatus.aspx?lsr=200&code=XH09

My regrets that I did not attain the level of awesomeness that is expected from me.
