Measure is a step toward restoring traditional marriage law in New Hampshire
Concord, N.H. — The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today praised the New Hampshire House Judiciary Committee for voting to repeal same-sex marriage in the state. The measure is now moving to the House floor for a vote in January 2012.
“The people of New Hampshire had their rights hijacked in 2009 when the Legislature and Governor John Lynch redefined marriage without giving the people a say,” said Brian Brown, NOM’s president. “Voters let the politicians know what they thought about that in 2010 when dozens of towns passed measures in favor of giving the people a say in defining marriage in New Hampshire, and they elected a strong pro-marriage majority in the Legislature. It’s time now to restore the people’s right to traditional marriage, and we are committed to working with allies to do just that.”
