New Hampshire Republicans Give Up On Sad Attempt To Repeal Gay Marriage

With a 15-0 vote in the New Hampshire State House Judiciary Committee, two bills attempting to nix 2009’s same-sex marriage law have been tabled, “effectively” ending the chances of moving on the issue this year. How come? “House Majority Leader D. J. Bettencourt, R-Salem, had decided that this divisive issue would distract from GOP priorities to adopt a balanced budget, change the education funding constitutional amendment and alter pension programs.” Sorry you had to make the trip, Maggie.
