New Hampshire Inches Closer to Right-to-Work

New Hampshire Inches Closer to Right-to-Work

May 4, 2011 Posted by J. Scott Moody - No Comments

Today the New Hampshire House voted to send the Senate version of the Right-to-Work bill to Gov. Lynch.  The Governor has 5 days to sign it or let it become law without his signature.  However, he has already vowed to veto it.  In which case, it goes back to the Legislature for an override.

This version was already passed by the Senate with a 2/3 majority so I’m guessing that won’t problem in the override process.  However, the House did not pass its own version with a 2/3 majority.  It remains to be seen as to whether or not this particular Bill, which originated in the Senate, would garner more votes in the House than in the last go-around.

Stay tuned . . . this issue is vitally important to Maine’s economy.   That is unless Maine policymakers also decide to join the economically prosperous Right-to-Work club.
