What Will Governor Lynch Veto?
First, Governor Lynch has signed into law SB 382, which will allow for proration of property assessments for damaged buildings. While we are pleased with the Governor’s signature on this important piece of legislation; the fate of other bills still hangs in the balance.
Governor Lynch MAY veto other pieces of legislation passed the House and Senate including: the compromise version of RGGI; the bill which will prevent our state from joining a Liquid RGGI program; as well as HB 1607 and SB 372, which would establish education tax credits. We will keep you posted on the status of all these bills.
Secondly, AFP-NH was proud to join with business leaders and organizations in the communities of Salem and Windham on Saturday to host the Southern NH Gubernatorial Economic Forum. More than eighty people turned out to hear Speaker of the NH House Bill O’Brien and gubernatorial candidates Ovide Lamontagne and Kevin Smith discuss their ideas to improve economic conditions in the southern part of the state. We look forward to hosting many more events like this around NH that give you an opportunity to interact directly with your elected officials and candidates for office.
Third, our sister organization, Americans for Prosperity Foundation, is hosting the fifth annual RightOnline Conference this week in Las Vegas. For those of you who are unable attend, we will make videos from the conference available once it is completed. In the meantime, I encourage you to learn more about another Americans for Prosperity Foundation event, the Defending the Dream Summit, which will take place August 2-4 in Washington, D.C.
