The New Hampshire House of Representatives and Senate met yesterday to consider Governor Sununu’s vetoes on a half-dozen pieces of legislation. At the end of the day, only two vetoes were overridden – those on HB 143, relative to recommittal of a prisoner by the parole board and SB 365, relative to the use of renewable generation to provide fuel diversity. Members will continue meeting over the next several months on bills referred for interim study and in commissions and committees on multiple issues. Legislators will also begin filing legislation for consideration in 2019 over that same time period as well.

The final legislative report for the 2018 session prepared by Association Retained Lobbyist David Collins, President, RYP Strategies, Concord, is available HERE.

As a reminder, the next New Hampshire Advocacy Committee meeting will be held on Thursday, September 20, from 1:30 – 3:00 pm hosted by Triangle Credit Union, Nashua. Please register HERE. The meeting will focus on the recent election implications and issues on our advocacy platform.
