LA CROSSE Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Protesters gathered at La Crosse’s city hall this afternoon asking the mayor to stop the conversion therapy ban. In response, the mayor said in part:

“I am aware of requests to veto a common council legislative item. This item was approved by the council on Thursday, June 9th. I signed the item on Monday. A veto of the legislation was not a consideration.

The ordinance making conversion therapy for minors unlawful passed in a six to four vote.
