House votes to override governor’s veto of death penalty repeal
CONCORD, N.H. —New Hampshire is one step closer to getting rid of the death penalty after the House overrode the governor’s veto of a repeal bill by the narrowest possible margin.
Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed the repeal bill in May after it passed the House and Senate with veto-proof majorities. The House voted to override the veto Thursday by a vote of 247-123, reaching the two-thirds majority needed by a single vote.
