Still Time to Convince NH Gov. Lynch to Sign Marriage Equality Bill

If you still haven't contacted Gov. John Lynch of New Hampshire to urge him to sign the marriage equality bill, you still have time.

According to the Telegraph:
The Senate-crafted compromise (HB 436) only got to Secretary of State Bill Gardner late Friday afternoon, while the second bill (HB 310) that fixes mistakes made in the first wasn't there yet.

At a minimum, what must follow are signatures from the Senate president, House speaker and key members on the House and Senate Enrolled Bills committee.

Then and only then could it go to Lynch's office after which Lynch would have five days after that to decide whether to sign, veto or let it become law without his signature.
Good news is, the New Hampshire Freedom to Marry Coalition has thousands of signatures going to the governor in support of the bill. You can add your signature here.

Remember, marriage equality opponents, Cornerstone Policy Research and the National Organization for Marriage added WMUR-TV to its TV buy, reminding Lynch he campaigned against gay marriage in 2006.

He needs to hear from you.

Counter NOM! Urge the governor to sign the bill!
