New Hampshire gay-marriage bill may get tangled up in state Senate

04/14/09 Reuters:

The New Hampshire Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a public hearing tomorrow on HB 436, providing equal access to marriage.

"Several senators in the Democrat-controlled legislature contacted by Reuters speculated the bill would face defeat, citing Democratic Governor John Lynch's opposition, or be tabled indefinitely so lawmakers can avoid taking a stance on the issue ahead of elections next year ... gay marriage could face defeat if just four Democrats take their cue from the governor and oppose it."
