Governor Hassan’s Statement on Signing HB 1282

CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan issued the following statement after today signing HB 1282, a measure relative to prepaid contracts for home heating fuel:

“In recent winters, a rising number of New Hampshire residents who have pre-buy oil contracts have found themselves in danger of running out of heating oil and facing an emergency situation. This bipartisan legislation represents an important step toward increasing consumer protection for residents who have pre-buy contracts, and I thank Representative Ford and legislators from both parties for working to address this critical issue.”
