To my constituents in
Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,
This week, the House met
on Governor Sununu’s vetoes. The House bills were quite minor: HB
143, allowing a parole violator to be remanded for less than 90 days
in some circumstances, was briefly explained by its supporters, and
the veto overridden, 255-89. HB 314, establishing a way for
driverless cars to be registered in the state and requiring them to
obey traffic laws, was also explained and overridden, 279-66. HB
1736, increasing the amount from the dam repair fund that can be
spent without governor and council approval, was also explained and
overridden, 266-79. The Senate overrode the veto on HB 143, but not
After a recess, we
received two of the vetoed Senate bills (SB 593, repealing the death
penalty, was not overridden in the Senate.) SB 365, biomass
subsidies, was debated at length as to the financial impact,
pollution effects, importance to the state, and the veto was
overridden, 226-113. SB 446, increasing the net metering limit to 5
MW, was also debated but the veto was sustained, 213-128.
My committee on constant
dollar amortization for the pension system met again, and learned
that the switch would cost $97 million in the first year, resulting
in a property tax increase of $ 0.25-0.66 in the state’s most
populous towns and cities (and probably about the same in smaller
ones.) Neither the governor’s staff, nor House or Senate Finance
chairs, had any support for funding that increase at the state
level, and none of the committee members would consider imposing it
on property taxpayers. Switching now would not pay off the liability
any faster, nor eliminate market risk, and the change to the
system’s funding status was minimal. So the committee moved to not
recommend a change at this time and adjourned.
