The New Hampshire state Senate this morning approved a compromise gay marriage bill by a 14-10 party line vote. Now we’re just waiting to see what the N.H. House will do.
The vote comes about two weeks after the House defeated an earlier amendment to a gay marriage bill that had already passes both houses because Gov. John Lynch said he would veto gay marriage unless the amendment was added to strengthen protections for those with religious objections with gay marriage.
That House vote two weeks ago was 188 to 186, and today’s vote on the revised amendment is expected to be just about that close.
Stay tuned for more updates.
