CONCORD – Following the House’s final passage today of the New Hampshire Paycheck Fairness Act, Governor Maggie Hassan released the following statement:
“With the final passage of the most significant piece of legislation for women in New Hampshire’s workforce in over a decade, Republican and Democratic members of the House have reaffirmed the basic principle that an equal day’s work deserves an equal day’s pay.
“Eliminating the pay gap between women and men will strengthen our economy and the financial security of working families across the state, and I thank Senator Larsen, Speaker Norelli and legislators from both parties for passing this common-sense legislation. I look forward to signing the New Hampshire Paycheck Fairness Act into law and helping ensure that all of our workers earn a fair and equal paycheck.”
