State Rep. David Bates, R-Windham, will continue his campaign to repeal gay marriage in New Hampshire with a press conference in Concord on March 13.
According to release on behalf of Bates, the conference will take place in the lobby of the Legislative Office Building at 10:30 a.m.
Bates, who is the prime sponsor of House Bill 437 calling for the restoration of traditional marriage in the state, will discuss the timing of the bill and when it will come of the full House of Representatives for a vote. He will also announce the details of a floor amendment to the bill.
Bates paid out of pocket for a mail campaign last month centered around getting support for the bill. The letters targeted districts where representatives were either on the fence or their views on the issue unknown. He also hosted a rally on Feb. 7 in Concord in support of traditional marriage between a man and a woman.
