NH bills on drones, gay conversion therapy die in negotiations

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — Efforts to ban the practice of gay conversion therapy for minors and to regulate the use of drones are two casualties of a busy week of legislative negotiations.

The House and Senate often pass competing versions of the same bills, leaving negotiating teams to pore over the details and search for agreement. The week marks one of most unpredictable of the legislative year, when bills that looked destined for passage can suddenly fall by the wayside.

Conversion therapy is a prime example. The legislation, which would've made it illegal for licensed counselors to try to change a minor's sexuality or gender identity, initially passed the GOP controlled House and Senate with minor differences. But without approval from the 7-member negotiating team, it won't be going to Gov. Maggie Hassan's desk.
