New Hampshire Takes Step Toward Marriage Equality

"They're gonna lead on"

The New Hampshire state Senate has joined the state House in passing a bill opening marriage to same-sex couples (story here). The bills would now have to be reconciled and the Governor have to sign it for the law to change. If New Hampshire makes the shift from its current parallel civil unions/civil marriage regime to one of equal marriage rights for same-sex couples, it would become the fourth state in New England with such rights (Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Vermont being the other three).
