CONCORD—Today, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted 219-142 to pass SB 1, establishing paid family and medical leave insurance.

Senator Dan Feltes (D-Concord), prime sponsor of SB 1, released the following statement after the vote:

“At this point there is only one roadblock to paid family and medical leave becoming a reality in New Hampshire—Governor Chris Sununu. The governor shouldn’t stand in the way of bipartisan legislation that’s been worked on for several years that creates a public-private partnership for paid leave. It’s time to pick a side. My hope is Governor Sununu sides with the working families and small businesses of New Hampshire, not big corporations and the entitled elite.”
