Over the summer, Governor Lynch vetoed a number of common-sense pieces of legislation that were passed by overwhelming majorities in the House and Senate. Some of these include…

HB 542 – This bill requires school districts to adopt a policy allowing an exception to specific course material based on a parent’s or legal guardian’s determination that the material is objectionable.

SB 154 – Repealing New Hampshire’s regional greenhouse gas initiative cap and trade program for controlling carbon dioxide emissions

SB 129 – This bill requires that a voter present a valid photo identification to vote in person.

SB 88 – Relative to physical force in defense of a person, relative to producing or displaying a firearm or other means of self-defense, and relative to eliminating minimum sentencing and adding civil immunity for certain firearm use.

The NH Senate is set to take up these vetoes and others on September 7th, while the House has not yet set a date.
