There were a lot of votes taken in the past two weeks in Maine to override various vetoes. The results from my cursory look show a very conservative state with a near Neanderthal Governor. Who was elected in the first place.

I would tend to think the trend is against allowing insurance reimbursable reparative therapay, especially for minors, including in Maine, but with the SCOTUS trend and all the Ill Duce Trump voters we might see all sorts of reactionary developments.
