Besides budget, vetoes stand

Sep 17, 2015

Yesterday the state legislature failed to override Gov. Maggie Hassan’s veto of the following bills:

  • HB 332, requiring teachers to give parents two weeks’ notice before covering any material including human sexuality
  • HB 449, ending child support for children over age eighteen attending nontraditional high school equivalency programs
  • HB 550, called the “Planet Fitness bill,” making it easier for companies to sell stock without paying extra taxes
  • HB 603, allowing students to opt-out of statewide assessment tests
  • SB 101, forbidding the state from requiring school districts to adopt Common Core standards
  • SB 116, allowing concealed carry without a license
  • SB 169, forbidding the use of EBT cards to purchase certain items
  • SB 179, requiring a voter to live in the state at least 30 days

However, legislators hope to reconsider some of these issues in 2016.  For example, Rep. James Spillane (R-Deerfield) has requested a bill related to carrying a pistol or revolver without a license.

Should NH continue to base statewide assessments on Common Core standards?
