NH Panel To Act On Same-Sex Marriage Repeal Measures

02/09/10 6:06AM

A House committee will recommend whether New Hampshire's five-week-old same-sex marriage law should be repealed.

The Judiciary Committee also votes today whether to support a constitutional amendment banning same-sex unions. Same-sex marriage opponents know their chance of success is slim, but they want to keep the issue before voters in hopes Republicans will regain control of the Statehouse from Democrats in November and succeed then in repealing the law.

The House next acts on the recommendations.

New Hampshire became the fifth state to legalize gay marriage on January 1st.
