New Hampshire Republicans to Gov. Lynch: Veto Gay Marriage

Because, uh, there just isn’t enough time to deal with it? Yes, the single stroke of a pen to grant civil rights is too time consuming for legislators! ““Now is the time to allow the citizens of New Hampshire to vote on a same-sex marriage referendum,” says State Sen. Minority Leader Peter Bragdon. More: “Former House Speaker and current House assistant minority leader Gene Chandler, R-Bartlett, said the proposed budget is half a billion dollars out of balance and there is only six weeks to resolve it before the new fiscal year begins. ‘However you feel about same-sex marriage it is time to move on and deal with the budget of the State of New Hampshire,’ Chandler said this morning at a news conference.”
