NEW HAMPSHIRE MARRIAGE WATCH

As I said earlier, we may see whether New Hampshire will be the next state to approve same-sex marriage by the end of the day. I'll update this as it goes:
  • As of right now (120pm), the New Hampshire Senate has, for the third time, voted for the marriage equality bill. Now, onto the House which has once voted for it, twice voted against it... always by the slimmest of margins. But this new compromise comes from the House, so we'll see...
  • Well, who needs a watch when you've got the good people of New Hampshire to work quickly... that's right folks, whilst I slept... The House passed the marriage equality bill and Gov. Lynch signed it into law, making New Hampshire the sixth state in the union to legalize same-sex unions. 
WHOOHOO!!!! Click here for a video of Gov. Lynch's statement and signing, calling this a "great day for all New Hampshire families," from WMUR (thanks to @unitethefight).

Glad to know the video got out more. Such a great thing to watch - the signing of a marriage equality bill. :)
