Should a House committee consider a bill that would pre-empt Lawrence from adopting a domestic partner registry?
Asked at Borders, 700 N.H. on February 16, 2007
“I’m all for the domestic partner registry, but I understand their concern that the city would undermine the policies of the state.”
“Absolutely not. First of all, it’s none of their business, and I think it’s mean-spirited not to allow the law to develop. I can’t see any legitimate reason for the state to get involved.”
“I don’t think so, because I’m in favor of there being a registry here. I think people are entitled to the rights it would provide.”
“They should consider it only because it’s bound to become a statewide issue eventually. I think in the end it should be decided by the state and not by individual cities.”
