CONCORD - Today, Governor Sununu vetoed HB 250, a bill establishing a dental benefit under the state Medicaid program.
Senator Cindy Rosenwald (D-Nashua) issued the following statement in response:
“There is irrefutable data that supports the economic and social benefits of preventative dental care. Particularly as New Hampshire faces a workforce shortage, vetoing a bill that would lead to increased employability, financial security, and would save the state money in emergency care costs is illogical and irresponsible.”
