NH Senate Sends Approved Marriage Equality Amendment to House

Nh An amendment requested by Governor John Lynch to the marriage equality bill recently passed by the legislature has been approved by the Senate and sent to the House:

"The 14-10 party-line vote in the Senate accepted Lynch's proposed language. If the House also approves the amendment, the governor could have the bill on his desk as early as Wednesday afternoon. The House previously passed the same-sex marriage bill 178-167."

The House is currently considering the bill.
