  • Status is not correct "A bill has been introduced, but not passed and is not law. Conversion therapy remains legal."
  • Status is not correct "Bill 483 banning conversion therapy was introduced in Idaho's legislature, but it has not passed."
  • Status is not correct "To my knowledge, HB483 hasn't been signed into law by the Governor yet. The Ways and Means Committee approved it, and it has yet to have a full House hearing, then it will go to the Senate if it passes the House, then it will go to the Governor's desk where he could very well veto it. In such a Republican state, it might not even be able to get through the house, let alone the house, senate, and gov."
  • Status is not correct "Law has not been passed."

NoteConversion Therapy is currently legal. No law currently bans it, despite organizations such as the American Psychological Association denouncing it. Though it's not actually ambiguous (It is in fact legal), this is the best indicator of the available options.Banned under bill 483
