CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The House Republican's legislative agenda will not include repealing gay marriage.
House Republican Leader D.J. Bettencourt confirmed to The Associated Press on Wednesday that jobs and the economy will be the top priorities that Republicans will use as their scorecard to measure themselves by for the next two years.
Bettencourt said social issues will take a back seat. He said one abortion initiative will be on the agenda but he declined to say what it is.
