New Hampshire House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt (R-Salem) told the Eagle Tribune that the legislature must first deal with some critical financial and economic-related legislation before any further discussion about the possible repeal of marriage equality. At the earliest, Bettencourt says a vote on HB 437 could come in February. Further debate is forthcoming despite a University of New Hampshire poll which found that 62 percent of state residents support the marriage equality law that took effect in January 2010.
