Governor Chris Sununu Statement on SB 593
Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement on SB 593, relative to the penalty for capital murder:
"I stand with crime victims, members of the law enforcement community, and advocates for justice in opposing a repeal of the death penalty. A top priority of my administration has been to strengthen laws for crime victims and their families. Repealing the death penalty sends us in exactly the wrong direction, and I will veto the bill if it reaches my desk. There is no doubt that the most heinous crimes warrant the death penalty."
