NH House panel to vote on marriage repeal bill
October 24, 2011
Tomorrow, New Hampshire's House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to vote on a bill that would repeal the freedom to marry in the Granite State, replacing it with civil union for gay and lesbian couples. Movement on this harmful legislation comes just days after a non-partisan statewide poll showed that a supermajority 62% of New Hampshire residents oppose such efforts to repeal the state's existing marriage law, with 50% of respondents saying they were strongly opposed.
Freedom to Marry is working closely with Standing up for New Hampshire Families, the campaign to protect marriage in NH. Standing up for New Hampshire families staff, organizers, and volunteers will be on hand for tomorrow's committee vote, and we'll be sure to keep you updated as the hearing and vote get underway.
Protecting marriage in New Hampshire is a high priority for us in the coming months. We'll be investing resources, staff time, and funding to ensure that the freedom to marry remains in tact in New Hampshire.
