Thank you for your recent communication in support of SB 1172 (Lieu) . This bill would prohibit mental health providers from attempting any procedures intended to alter the sexual orientation of minors. I appreciate hearing from you on this matter.

After carefully considering all of the arguments before me, I supported SB 1172 when it came before me for a vote on May 30, 2012 on the Senate Floor. Currently, the bill is being discussed by the assembly awaiting action by the Assembly.

You can read more about the status, history, and analysis of this and other bills online at . While you are online, please check out my website,, to learn of community events and other issues in which I am involved.
