"The redefinition of marriage was forced on New Hampshire with no vote of the people. We support letting voters decide this issue." —Brian Brown, NOM president—
Washington, D.C. — The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today urged the New Hampshire legislature to pass HB 437, compromise legislation to restore civil unions for same-sex couples, and repeal same-sex marriage while protecting couples who have already been "married." The bill's author, Rep. David Bates, has said he will offer an amendment letting voters have the final say on the legislation through a statewide referendum vote.
"Gay billionaires like Tim Gill forced same-sex marriage on the state in 2009 without voters having any say," said Brian Brown, NOM's president. "We urge the legislature to adopt this compromise bill and let the voters have the final say."
