Governor Hassan’s Statement on Hobby Lobby Decision

CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan today issued the following statement after the United States Supreme Court’s ruling in the Hobby Lobby case:

“Access to family planning services is critical for the health and economic security of women and families, as contraception costs are one of the biggest health care expenses for women and their families. While today’s Supreme Court decision is disappointing, I’m optimistic that employers will continue providing coverage for family planning services because it’s the right thing to do for workers, it will help businesses attract high-quality employees, and it will strengthen the economic security of working families.”
