CONCORD, N.H. -- Two new rallies have been added to the schedule of veto-overturn rallies, one at the Mine Falls hydropower plant in Nashua on August 2, and one at MiltonCate in Londonderry on August 23. 
The New Hampshire legislature is scheduled to vote on September 13 on whether to overturn Gov. Sununu's veto of Senate bills 365 and 446. The vetoes are already causing job and business losses in the forest products industry, with more to come if the vetoes aren't overturned.
Leading up to the September 13 vote, the NHTOA and the rest of the renewable power coalition will host several rallies at biomass energy plants and municipal/private renewable energy facilities around the state. The up-to-date schedule of rallies appears below. You are invited to attend any of these rallies -- note that media may be present at some or all of the events. These rallies are a great opportunity to show first-hand the negative impact these vetoes are having on timberland owners, forest-products businesses, and New Hampshire's rural communities. Get the facts on these bills and learn what you can do to help us override the veto on September 13.

  • July 30, 2018, 1:00 p.m. Springfield Power, 54 Fisher Corner Rd, Springfield, NH 03284
  • August 2, 2018, 9:00 a.m. Mine Falls hydropower plant, Stadium Drive, Nashua, NH  03062
