CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire House is pushing back on Gov. Maggie Hassan's veto of a bill related to depicting minors on alcohol advertisements.
State law prohibits references to minors in alcohol advertising. Earlier this year, the Legislature passed a bill removing that part of the law.
Rep. Keith Murphy, who owns a Manchester bar, sponsored the legislation because he wanted to be able to sell Founders Breakfast Stout, a beer brewed in Michigan that features a baby on the label.
Hassan says changing the law will undermine New Hampshire's efforts to fight underage drinking.
House members disagreed Thursday, hitting the necessary two-thirds threshold to override the veto. The state's Liquor Commission would have to approve or deny labels under the law.
Senators must also vote on whether to override the veto.
