NH Reaches Compromise On Marriage Bill

This just in:
The stage is set for another vote on gay marriage in the New Hampshire Legislature. A little over a week after the House rejected language Gov. John Lynch had demanded, House and Senate negotiators agreed to a compromise Friday that added one sentence and changed one word in the Senate-passed bill. Negotiators planned to sign off on the final language by Monday, allowing for a vote by the full House and Senate on Wednesday.
Will New Hampshire become the sixth state on Wednesday? Will both NH chambers, who narrowly approved marriage equality on the first round, do so again? If they do, will Gov. Lynch keep his word and sign the bill?
