Medicaid Funds for Sex Change Surgeries?

The New Hampshire Senate rejected a bill that would ban using Medicaid funds for sex-change surgeries.

The 24-member body deadlocked 12-12, with two Republicans joining all the Democrats, according to The Union Leader. The tie means the bill failed, and that the state will continue to offer so-called gender reassignment sur.

New Hampshire Senate Bill 331 is likely dead for the session.

The New Hampshire House of Representatives rejected a similar bill March 7.
