New Hampshire Lawmakers Seek To Repeal Gay Marriage

New Hampshire state House subcommittee endorsed a bill that would repeal gay marriage.

Reuters has the report:

Some lawmakers in New Hampshire, one of only six states that allow same-sex marriage, moved on Wednesday to repeal the state law allowing gay nuptials.

An amendment passed by a House Judiciary subcommittee 3 to 1, alters a bill that in its original form banned both gay marriage and civil unions, said House spokeswoman Shannon Shutts.

The amended bill would allow civil unions but would define marriage as only between a man and a woman, said state Representative David Bates, a Republican and co-sponsor of the amendment.

It would allow existing same-sex marriages to be recognized.
