The New Hampshire legislature has set Sept. 13, 2018, as the date when votes will be taken on whether Gov. Sununu’s vetoes on certain pieces of legislation passed by the N.H. House and Senate should be overturned. Among the legislation to be considered are the two biomass bills that are crucial to the economic stability of New Hampshire’s forest products industry, Senate bills 365 and 446. The governor’s veto on each of these bills, both of which passed with overwhelming bipartisan support, was ill-informed, misguided, and ignorant of the basic economic facts of New Hampshire’s large forest-products industry.
Leading up to the Sept. 13 vote, the NHTOA will host several rallies at biomass energy plants around the state. You are invited to attend any of these rallies — note that media may be present at some or all of the events. The rallies include:

- August 9, 2018, 1:00 p.m. Bridgewater Power, 441 Daniel Webster Hwy, Plymouth, NH 03264
