Big drama in New Hampshire. Today, House Judiciary Committee will take up 2 bills that could repeal gay marriage. It is expected that hundreds of folks will attend the hearing.
The sponsor of one bill, House Republican Leader D.J. Bettencourt, has said he will ask the committee to hold the bills until next year so lawmakers can focus on fiscal issues. But the sponsor of the second bill believes it would be better to vote on the issue this year.I hope the bills fail.
Democratic Gov. John Lynch has said he will veto a repeal bill if it reaches his desk. Republicans hold supermajorities in both the House and Senate which would be enough to override a veto if the GOP caucus was united in repealing gay marriage.
