The California Assembly on Tuesday passed a bill that would ban so-called “ex-gay” or gay cure therapy from being practiced on under 18s.

Reports On Top Magazine:

The measure (Senate Bill 1172), sponsored by Senator Ted W. Lieu, a Democrat from Torrance, cleared the chamber with a 52 to 21 vote. The Senate approved the bill in May, but amendments added in the Assembly means it must first return to the Senate for a concurrence vote before heading to the desk of Governor Jerry Brown, a Democrat who has not said whether he’ll sign the bill into law.
