Today, the California Legislative Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Caucus issued the following statement regarding the death of a second man in the home of Ed Buck:

If enacted, the bill would make “advertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts” to the list of fraudulent business practices already banned in California.
