Concord, NH – NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding the veto of Senate Bill 1, the Democrat Income Tax:

“Today, Governor Sununu stood with the people of New Hampshire in vetoing the deeply flawed and destructive Senate Bill 1 – the Democrat Income Tax. This is exactly why the people of New Hampshire re-elected Governor Sununu with the highest vote total of any Governor in a midterm election in New Hampshire history – to hold the line on pieces of legislation, like Senate Bill 1, that will destroy the New Hampshire Advantage. While Democrats played games and delayed this bill from getting to the Governor’s desk, the Governor is sending a clear message to the businesses, workers, and families of New Hampshire that he will defend their interests in Concord. State House Democrats now have plenty of time to adjust the budget to remove this legislation and restore the Governor’s original proposal for the voluntary Twin State family leave plan.”
