Lawmakers plan September return to vote on vetoes
The Associated Press
CONCORD (AP) — House Speaker Shawn Jasper says lawmakers should plan to return in September to vote on the various pieces of legislation Gov. Maggie Hassan has vetoed.
The House calendar sets a tentative "veto day" of Sept. 16. Jasper says lawmakers may return earlier if the state's budget issues are resolved. The Senate is likely to meet the same day.
The Legislature can override a veto with two-thirds support in each chamber. Hassan has vetoed 10 bills, including two budget bills.
The bills she vetoed would have created a 30-day residency requirement for voting in the state, allowed parents to opt their children out of Common Core-aligned tests and restricted the use of cash welfare benefits, among other things. She also vetoed a bill removing the licensing requirement for carrying concealed guns.
