The office of State Senator Kevin Avard (R-District 12) has produced an excellent video on the necessity and importance of overturning Gov. Sununu’s vetoes of Senate bills 365 and 446. Watch the video here.
Sen. Avard’s district includes Nashua, which has a large hydropower facility. SB 446 in particular would be a great help for hydro, solar, and biomass power. SB 446 and SB 365 would help guarantee that local energy plants have the means to generate local power for New Hampshire residents. The Sununu vetoes of these bills makes the state’s energy complex more dependent than ever on natural gas generated by outside companies beyond New Hampshire’s control. In addition, the vetoes threaten hundreds of local jobs and hundred of millions of dollars of local economic contribution to the New Hampshire economy.
