New Hampshire Testimony 2019

Special Marriage Officiants

In response to our membership’s opposition to the New Hampshire special marriage officiant bill, JPus testified in person three times to the legislature; we provided alternative solutions that would satisfy all stakeholders. We also submitted written testimony, and eventually the bill died in conference.
