Senate Republicans Vote Down Transgender Bill
–Today, the New Hampshire Senate voted 24-0 to kill HB 415, which would
have given special legal status to transgenders.
“Today was an
important victory in stopping the radical San
Francisco agenda by the liberal left,” said Senate
Minority Leader Peter Bragdon. “The position of the Senate Republicans is
the same as that of Governor Lynch, who says concerns raised by advocates of
the bill are already addressed in current law.”
HB 415 would allow
a person to enter any restroom, regardless of his or her sex at birth, based on
how he or she behaves, sounds or appears.
