Bill to Repeal Same-Sex Marriage Fails
by Diane Chubb The New Hampshire House recently voted on a bill that
would have repealed same-sex marriage. The vote, which took place on Wednesday, March 21, failed to repeal the existing law. Lawmakers voted 116-211 against HB 437, and chose to retain the law as it stands. Rep. David Bates, R-Windham, was the prime sponsor of House Bill 437. He led the fight to repeal the law allowing same- sex marriage, asking colleagues to recognize the uniqueness and distinctiveness of what marriage is. House members debated the issue for two hours. At one point,
lawmakers even considered a ban of marriages for left-handed couples, an amendment that opponents of the bill had submitted to make their point.
Bates also attempted to amend the bill to include a non- binding referendum for New Hampshire voters in the November election. This amendment was rejected. For some representatives, the issues was not whether they
favored the law, but the fact that NH Legislature had just provided those rights to same-sex couples. They believed it would be wrong to turn around a few years later and take those rights away. “New Hampshire values the rights of individuals,” said Rep.
David Kidder, R-New London. He believed that repealing those rights would put the state on a slippery slope. Rep. Kidder agreed with Welch, saying repeal of civil rights
after granting those rights puts the state on a slippery slope. Following the vote, Doherty explained, “I wasn’t able to be there for the March 21 vote, but I believe the House did the right thing. Hopefully this is the end of the repeal effort in New Hampshire and we can worry about issues like jobs and taxes.” Pelham is currently part of a delegation from Pelham, Hudson and Litchfield. The votes on HB 437 were as follows: Vote in favor of repeal of same-sex marriage: Rep. Ralph Boehm, Rep. Randall Brownrigg, Rep. Laura Gandia, Rep. Jordan Ulery (Sponsor)
Vote against repeal of same-sex marriage: Rep. Lars Christiansen, Rep. Bob Haefner, Rep. Shawn Jasper, Rep. George Lambert, Rep. Jonathan Maltz
Reps who were “Excused” or “Not Present”: Rep. Shaun Doherty, Rep. Lynne Ober, Rep. Russell Ober, Rep. Andy Renzullo* *This was taken from the “roll-call” on the state’s legislative website for HB 437. Another page which lists Renzullo’s voting record indicates that he voted in favor of the repeal).

Household Hazardous Waste Season Kicks Off
submitted by Nashua Regional Planning Commission After some unseasonably warm weather, many people are thinking about spring cleaning. The 2012 Household Hazardous Waste season begins just in time to help you empty out your basement, garage, and shed. The first collection of 2012 will be held Saturday, April 14, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Nashua Public Works Garage, 9 Stadium Drive, Nashua. Visit www. nashuarpc.org/hhw
for the rest of the 2012 collection schedule. Residents of Hudson, Litchfield, Pelham, and Windham are welcome to attend. There is a $10 user fee per vehicle, which covers up to 10 gallons or 20 pounds of waste. Residents who bring more than this amount will be charged accordingly to help offset the additional costs. A variety of common household hazardous waste (HHW) products are accepted at the collection events. HHW comes from everyday products used in the home and yard. By definition, these products are corrosive, flammable, toxic, or reactive. Non- latex paints, solvents, oven cleaners, pool chemicals, pesticides, drain openers, and auto chemicals are just a few examples. For a complete list of accepted items, visit www.nashuarpc.org/hhw
or call 424-2240.
Electronics are also collected at all HHW events. There is a small fee for electronics recycling. Prices vary by item, but most common household electronics are $5. For a complete price list, visit www.nashuarpc.org/hhw
. If you only bring electronics to an HHW collection you do not have to pay the $10 user fee. However, if you bring electronics as well as other household hazardous wastes, you do need to pay the $10 user fee in addition
to the electronics charge. As a reminder, latex paint is not accepted at collection events;
instead it should be dried out and disposed of at your local landfill or transfer station. Medications are also not accepted at HHW collection events. However, the Drug Enforcement Administration is sponsoring a national drug take back collection in communities across the country on Saturday April 28, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. To find out if your community is participating, visit www.justice. gov/dea. There are more benefits to participating in a HHW collection than simply cleaning out your garage or basement. When hazardous waste is improperly disposed of - in the trash, on the ground, down the sink, or into a storm drain - it poses a threat to water quality and can kill fish and wildlife. Household toxins can also injure humans and pets if they are exposed to these chemicals due to careless storage and handling. Furthermore, our growing demand for the newest technology has resulted in a significant number of discarded electronics. In addition to the large volume of space these items take up in landfills, their improper disposal poses serious environmental risks due to hazardous materials, such as lead and mercury, commonly found in electronics. Discarded electronics also contain valuable resources, such as precious metals, engineered plastics, and glass, which require significant energy to manufacture. When electronics are disposed of instead of recycled, these resources cannot be recovered and additional pollution is generated in order to manufacture new products.

or call 424-2240.
Consumer Alert Issued for Companies Offering to Sell a Consumer’s Timeshare
submitted by Attorney General Michael A. Delaney Attorney General Michael A. Delaney has announced that his office is issuing a Consumer Alert to consumers who own a timeshare and may be interested in selling it. Attorney General Delaney warns there are companies that send consumers unsolicited letters or postcards in the mail advertising that they can sell a consumer’s timeshare if the consumer no longer wishes to own it. The unsolicited letter or postcard invites the consumer to an event held at a local hotel and subsequently requires the consumer to pay an advanced fee to the company to complete the sale transaction for his or her timeshare. Attorney General Delaney warns that a typical scenario for this type of
scam is that after a consumer completes the transaction, he or she is unable to contact the sales representative or the company because either the telephone number is no longer in service; the consumer’s telephone call is not returned; the company’s address is no longer available; or the company’s website is no longer posted on the internet. Consumers who wish to check the track record of a business, obtain information about consumer protection issues, or report consumer complaints, may do so by logging onto the Consumer Protection Bureau’s Website at www.doj.nh.gov/consumer
. They may also call the Consumer Protection hotline at 1-888-468-4454 (toll free).
