CONCORD - Today, Governor Sununu vetoed SB 311, Senator Martha Hennessey’s (D-Hanover) bill to provide for an annulment of a criminal record without payment of a fee in certain cases and specify a waiting period for the annulment of simple possession drug-related offenses.

Senator Martha Hennessey (D-Hanover) issued the following statement in response:

“The criminal justice system does not exist on a level playing field. We know that there are disproportionate consequences for low income individuals that can lead to long term employment and housing challenges that harm the individual, their families, and their communities. SB 311 sought to create a more equitable system of justice. I am disappointed in Governor Sununu’s veto today and will continue to support changes that create a just system for all.”
