Sen Dodd Statement on NH Civil Unions

MANCHESTER, NH- Senator and Presidential candidate Chris Dodd issued the following statement on New Hampshire's Civil Unions law taking effect today.

"Today, New Hampshire took a big step forward in ensuring that gay and lesbian couples enjoy the same rights and responsibilities as their fellow citizens," said Dodd. "I was proud to support civil unions in my home state of Connecticut and I was proud to support Governor Lynch and the State Legislature when they passed this law last spring. I hope that New Hampshire's commitment to providing equal rights and responsibilities to all its citizens will serve as a positive example for the rest of the country."
