    From what I read, it looks like the New Hampshire House will agree to the changes and send the bill to Governor Lynch (D) for his signature. Not sure what he will do, sign it, veto it or let it become law without his signature. Anyone in NH have more information?

    "Governor John Lynch, a Democrat who has opposed same-sex marriage in the past and has not indicated whether he would sign or veto the latest measure.
    Former governor John H. Sununu, now chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party, called the Senate vote "radical" and said Lynch must veto the bill. In a statement, Sununu urged Lynch to address rumors that he might let the bill become law without his signature, avoiding a decision to sign or veto it.
    A spokesman for Lynch said the governor would make a decision only after careful review of the amended bill, should it reach him. "I don't know what the Republican Party is talking about," said Colin Manning, the spokesman."

    And this is why I hate the veto power.

    Former New Hampshire governor John Sununu needs to get his thinking out of the dark ages. That man just loves to show his total ignorance. Will the 21st century ever enlighten him? I am happy that New Hampshire's state senate has passed the gay marriage bill. Hopefully the yellow dog democratic governor will either leave it alone and let it become law or admit his horribly mistakened thinking by manning up and signing this gay marriage bill into law adding New Hampshire to a small but growing list of states that now accepts and legalizes gay marriage.
