Photo Release: Governor Chris Sununu Signs Emergency Energy Relief Legislation Into Law

Concord, NH –  Today, Governor Chris Sununu signed HB 2023, an act making appropriations to the Department of Energy for a state emergency fuel assistance program and a supplemental electric benefit, and relative to the electric low-income program fund, and issued the following statement:

“New Hampshire just delivered the largest energy relief package this state has ever seen, helping families in need this winter – using our state surplus funds,” said Governor Chris Sununu. “While this final legislation looks a little different from what we originally proposed, this is a big win, and I’d like to thank Speaker Packard and Senate President Morse for getting this across the finish line. Thanks to strong fiscal management, New Hampshire is able to invest state-surplus funds to help families get through this winter.”
