CONCORD, N.H. -- House Republican leaders will not push for the repeal of gay marriage laws this year, but they won't work to stop it either, House Majority Leader Rep. D.J. Bettencourt said today.
Bettencourt laid out the GOP agenda for the coming year, focusing on budget, pension reform, education funding, parental rights and the economy.
Lawmakers have requested legislative staff to draft bills to repeal gay marriage laws that took effect Jan. 1, 2010. They have not been completed, and if introduced would have work their way through the legislative process.
