Today the House takes up the Senate’s amended version of marriage for concurrence (heh – Latin for “running together”; sounds like “marriage” to me!). Says Jim:
House Bill 436 will be on the House floor this Wednesday, May 6th. We will ask the House to “concur” with the excellent amendments put onto the bill by the Senate. If we are able to earn concurrence, the bill then will be on its way to Governor John Lynch, who we hope will continue to listen to the growing support that marriage equality has received during all these months.
I’m pretty much sending every positive thought I can muster to Terie Norelli and Jim Splaine and all those Democrats, Republicans, and libertarians who voted for it the first time around (and those thinking about it now with the amended version). Helps to calm my nerves!
My “real life” obligations will keep me from following this closely today, so consider this a marriage equality House concurrence open thread. Please add what you hear and observe in the comments section.
