Divide & Concord: NH repeal bill put on pause

by Jeremy Hooper

Good news out of NH:

CONCORD – A House committee voted today to take repeal of the state’s same-sex marriage off the table this year.

The 15-0 vote of the House Judiciary Committee effectively means two bills repealing the 2009 law won’t return to the full House of Representatives until early next year.There was no debate in committee about the move.

No repeal of same-sex marriage law this year [Nashua Telegraph]

But don't be led into seeing this as closing of any biased book. The common belief is that the repeal bill will be brought back next year, after other work is done, at which time Republican lawmakers will reportedly support it.

So married NH gays: Enjoy a free and clear year of breathing easily within your legal unon. Just don't forget that there is a very real, very committed faction still out there hoping to term limit your anniversary celebrations.
