It's been posted to MyDD's front page that a tweet from AP's Phil Elliot says that Lynch is willing to sign a marriage bill, if the NH Legislature passes new language strengthing religious protections.

Lynch's statement is copied in whole on the MyDD link, but the key sentences are


“This morning, I met with House and Senate leaders, and the sponsors of this legislation, and gave them language that will provide additional protections to religious institutions.

“This new language will provide the strongest and clearest protections for religious institutions and associations, and for the individuals working with such institutions.  It will make clear that they cannot be forced to act in ways that violate their deeply held religious principles.

“If the legislature passes this language, I will sign the same-sex marriage bill into law. If the legislature doesn't pass these provisions, I will veto it.
