New Hampshire Passes Same-Sex Marriage Bill, Now Awaiting Governor Approval

The New Hampshire Legislature has passed a bill allowing gay marriage, but the governor hasn’t said whether he’ll sign it.

Gov. John Lynch has said he believes the word “marriage” should be reserved for the union of a man and a woman. But he has not said whether he would sign the bill, veto it or let it become law without his signature.

Maine legislators voted earlier today to approve gay marriage. If it becomes law in both states, they would be the fifth and sixth to allow same-sex couples to marry.
