NH Rejects Gay Marriage Ballot Push
Moments ago, the New Hampshire House resoundingly rejected an attempt to place a vote to repeal same-sex marriage on the November ballot.
CACR 28 defined marriage in this state by saying it can only be between a man and a woman. It was rejected by a wide margin, 201-135, short of a simple majority and far below the three-fifths majority -- 238 votes -- it needed to advance to the Senate. Sponsors tried to delay a vote on the bill until March 17, so local voters could weigh in on petitions at town meeting that ask for a popular vote on the amendment. "All we're trying to do here is put this on the ballot," Rep. David Bates, R-Windham, arguing voters should have their say.Cheers to New Hampshire! We are wriggling with pleasure.
