House OKs transgender rights bill


Lakes Region delegation mostly opposed to legislationBy THOMAS P. CALDWELL, LACONIA DAILY SUNCONCORD — The New Hampshire House has voted, 195-129, to extend the state’s anti-discrimination law to transgender people, with the majority of Lakes Region representatives voting against the bill. “I think that a lot of studies have been done in this area [supporting transgender rights], and they were trying to stall the vote by asking that it be studied further,” he said. Vincent Paul Migliore, R-Bridgewater, was among the majority from the Lakes Region voting against the bill. Passage by the House sends the bill, HB 1319, to the New Hampshire Senate for a full vote in the coming weeks. Chris Sununu has endorsed the bill, as well as the New Hampshire Association of Chiefs of Police, the Business and Industry Association of New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Women’s Foundation, House Libertarian Caucus, Children’s Legislative Caucus, and the New Hampshire Human Rights Commission.
