N.H. Senate Works to Add Amendment to Gay Marriage Bill
Concord, New Hampshire - May 19, 2009
The New Hampshire Senate will hold another hearing today to try and tackle a crucial amendment to the same-sex marriage bill. It's one Governor John Lynch says must be adopted in order for him to sign it.
Currently the bill allows churches to decide whether they will conduct religious marriages for gay couples.
Last week, Gov. Lynch said he won't sign the bill without clearer language to better protect churches and their employees against lawsuits if their beliefs prevent them from marrying gay couples.
That new language will be added to an unrelated bill which will come to a vote in the Senate and House on Wednesday.
If approved, New Hampshire will be the sixth state to allow gays to marry.
