New Hampshire Next?

leave a comment »

Governor John Lynch has four more days to decide whether he’ll uphold the definition of marriage or redefine it.  According to the article, 64% of New Hampshirians(-shirites? -shirens?) support marriage as one man and one woman.

New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch has until next Tuesday to decide the fate of a gay marriage bill that was sent to his desk after final legislature approval was given on Wednesday.

Lynch has not indicated his next move on the same-sex marriage legislation but has said that he believes the word “marriage” should be reserved for the union between a man and a woman.

The Democratic governor can either sign the bill, issue a veto or let it become law without signing it.

“I have a responsibility as governor to do what I think is best for the people of New Hampshire,” Lynch said after the House vote. “I will continue to talk with the legislature and with the people of New Hampshire about that bill.”

If signed or allowed to become law by Lynch, New Hampshire would be the sixth state to legalize gay marriage. The law would take effect on Jan. 1, 2010.
