Maggie believes in the rights of all citizens to participate fully in the civic and economic life of our communities. In the State Senate, she was instrumental in passing marriage equality in New Hampshire. The Concord Monitor reported "Hassan helped gay marriage pass the Senate by crafting an amendment that won over hesitant senators. Former state representative Jim Splaine, who sponsored the legislation, said Hassan was able to find a consensus among Democratic senators that the existing civil union law was not sufficient."
