Same-Sex Marriage Repeal Among Leftover NH Issues


The Associated Press:

Legislation to repeal gay marriage is one of the highly charged issues left over from the just-completed legislative session that must be acted on early next year. The two proposed repeal bills would not affect gay marriages before repeal, but would stop new same-sex marriages.

... [Republican state Rep. David] Bates is confident a repeal bill will reach Democratic Gov. John Lynch, but he isn't sure supporters have the votes in the House to overturn Lynch's promised veto. If that happens, he will consider bringing the repeal bill back in the future when a governor who supports it is in office, he said.
