For the most comprehensive report from the floor of yesterday’s veto session in the New Hampshire, check out our story from yesterday. But today’s papers contain a lot more reaction from around the State House.
In the Union Leader, Tom Fahey leads with the Senate coming one vote short of pulling the state out of RGGI.
The 15-9 vote was one vote short of the two-thirds majority needed to override the veto of Senate Bill 154. Senate President Peter Bragdon, R-Milford, sided with Lynch.
The Senate had attempted a reform of the program rather than outright repeal in June, but the House refused to compromise.
House leaders said they will be back with another repeal attempt next year. Speaker of the House William O’Brien called the RGGI cap-and-trade system an “income redistribution ploy.”
The Concord Monitor’s Matthew Spolar writes about the override of a bill expanding the permissible use of deadly force.
