New Hampshire voters will not get the chance to decide on a state amendment to protect marriage after the state House voted down the proposal, 233-124, today.

Auburn Republican Dudley Dumaine warned amendment opponents they would be held accountable in the 2008 election.

“I want you on record telling the people they don’t have a right to vote on this constitutional amendment,” he told The Associated Press.

Twenty-seven states have passed marriage amendments.

In a separate vote, the House failed to overturn a 2004 law to only recognize out-of-state marriages that would be legal in New Hampshire.
