BREAKING: NH House sends marriage bill to conference committee to work out final details
May 20, 2009
In a series of votes today, the New Hampshire House displayed a definite willingness to pass a marriage equality bill - evidenced by a very strong vote of 173-202 when presented with a question to indefinitely postpone consideration of the issue (in other words, to kill it). While the House voted not to adopt today's version of the amended marriage bill by a very close vote of 186-188, clearly the members of the House want to see marriage equality passed based on the strong vote not to kill it entirely. The House will now convene a conference committee to hash out differences in good faith in order to schedule another vote perhaps as soon as in the next two weeks. We will of course keep you updated and New Hampshire residents should continue contacting their legislators to tell them to support marriage equality.
