CONCORD - Today, Governor Sununu vetoed HB 1166, a portion of the Senate Democrats’ Granite Promise Plan addressing worker safety and unemployment insurance.

Senate Majority Leader Dan Feltes (D-Concord) issued the following statement in response:

“HB 1166 was about getting people back to work – safely. As if vetoing paid family leave wasn’t enough, Sununu has now vetoed unpaid leave for COVID-19 for good measure. Sununu continues to sweep our broken unemployment insurance system under the rug, opposes testing and health care for those impacted by COVID-19, and refuses to advance worker safety, including free PPE for small businesses. Make no mistake, Sununu’s veto of HB 1166 is an attack on small businesses, worker safety, and public health, while appeasing the health insurance lobby and big corporations.”
