Several local media outlets produced reports about the big Veto Override Rally held on Sept. 6 on the Plaza at the State House. Media coverage has been fair, with many quotes from Rally speakers and attendees describing why it is necessary, for the future of New Hampshire’s forests, the state’s timber industry, and its many rural communities, to override Gov. Sununu’s vetoes of Senate bills 365 and 446.
The state legislature will convene on Sept. 13 to consider the vetoes. Overriding requires a two-thirds majority of each house of the legislature of all the senators and representatives present for the vote.
