No signature required?

Maine Senate passes same-sex marriage bill
The bill needs New Hampshire Governor John Lynch’s signature to become law.
As a New Hampshire resident, I would encourage you to correct your article about Maine’s Senate passing a same-sex marriage bill in which you wrote that for NH’s bill to pass Gov. Lynch would have to sign it.
This is only partly true. Gov. Lynch also has the option of letting the bill pass into law without his signature, by neither signing it nor vetoing it. Maybe next time you should research the legislative process of our state a bit more before you write!
