"We are encouraged by the Governor's comments outlining a specific path to achieve marriage equality in New Hampshire. The Governor has made clear that he will sign a bill that allows same-sex couples to marry while also protecting religious liberties. We thank the legislature for their efforts to date and the Governor for his thoughtful deliberation. We urge the legislature to work with the Governor to make this important bill a reality. This legislation will strengthen New Hampshire families and give meaning to the promise of equal rights for all."
