N.H. Marriage Out of Extra Innings

...and so back to Gov. Lynch in Concord. While the Senate this morning (14 to 10) squeezed in the minor tweaks to the same-sex marriage bills and the House minutes ago this afternoon rejected (186 to 188) concurrance.

At 3:20 p.m., it looks like a joint conference committee will return the original House version of HB73 (the religious protection stand-alone). If that returns without his cosmetic silliness to Lynch and he is as good as his word, he'll veto it.

I'll go soak my head and add more as it develops.

Follow-up: The House also refused to kill the bill. The vote for a compromise meeting with the Senate was 207 to 168. They don't even get paid a premium for overtime in the legislature, but they seem to love it.
