Vetoes Overridden (1): HB364
Here? There? No matter Livestreaming, baby! If you want to watch yourself, here’s the link.
Today is “Veto Day” and tomorrow is the same. The House will be “dealing” with all of the bills that Governor Sununu vetoed during the last session. I’ll be watching the NH House session all day to day and putting up the results of any votes that I can hear/see (I’m on rugrat duty given that TMEW is ill). This post will be updated and bumped during the day as needed.
Right now, they are just going through their Intro Ceremonies bit. Now they’ve actually started. All votes will be Roll Call votes. A YEA vote means to override the Governor’s veto, a NAY vote means to support the Governor’s veto.
HB105: Democrats want out-of-State citizens to be able to vote in NH (e.g., “domicile”, “resident”). Again, Horrigan believes that making people follow the law (getting an NH drivers license, registering your car here, et al) is a poll tax. They are voting now to undo SB3 from last session that finally said “NH voters only”. Yea: 220 Nay: 156 Veto is sustained.
