We remain confident that marriage equality will become law this year, and HB 73 is an important final step in that effort. Individual equality and religious freedom are New Hampshire values. We expect the House and Senate to now vote for HB 73 as reported out by the committee of conference. This is a very positive step and we remain optimistic that we will see legal protections for thousands of gay and lesbian couples signed into law by the Governor.

It is time for the legislature to act definitively to ensure individual liberties and fairness for all New Hampshire families. Individual liberties and religious freedoms are New Hampshire values. On Wednesday, the legislature will have the opportunity to defend these values by approving HB73. It’s time for fairness for all our families, and our day of action is intended to let the legislature know the time has come to pass this important legislation.
