New Hampshire House defeats amendment proposal

Posted on 17 Feb 2010 at 3:59pm

Just got word from Pam at Pam’s House Blend that the New Hampshire House of Representatives has defeated a proposal to put on the ballot in that state a constitutional amendment limiting legal marriage to unions between one man and one woman. The proposal was defeated by a vote of 201-135.

The New Hampshire House is also expected to vote today on a bill to repeal legal same-sex marriage in that state. Legislation allowing same-sex marriage in New Hampshire was approved last year and went into effect on Jan. 1 this year.

The House Judiciary Committee has recommended not passing either measure.
