New Hampshire House Votes Down Bill to Allow Wedding Vendors to Reject Gay Couples
The New Hampshire House on Wednesday voted down a bill which would have permitted wedding providers to refuse gay and lesbian couples. Lawmakers overwhelming rejected the bill with a 246-85 vote, the AP reported.

The measure sought to allow business owners to withhold wedding-related goods and services if they believe it would violate their conscience or religious faith. While the bill does not specifically list gay couples, a January hearing on the bill made it clear they were being targeted.

The bill's sponsor, Rep. Jerry Bergevin, a Republican from Manchester, has previously said that his bill "would hardly have any effect on same-sex marriage in New Hampshire, as there are many businesses in New Hampshire."
