NH Repeal Vote May Be Next Week
Michael Lavers reports that the vote to repeal same-sex marriage in New Hampshire will probably take place next week.
Sources familiar with the legislative calendar indicate that the vote will likely take place on Jan. 18. The measure is expected to pass in the Republican-controlled state Legislature, but Gov. John Lynch, who signed the marriage equality bill into law in 2009, has said he would veto the measure. It remains unclear whether there are enough votes to override the governor’s veto.Pollsters have consistently reported that a majority of New Hampshire residents support keeping marriage equality.
