Governor Sununu Statement on Death Penalty

Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement on HB 455, relative to the penalty for capital murder:

"It is unfortunate that the House voted to override my veto in a rushed, politically motivated process," said Governor Chris Sununu. "I will always fight for what I believe because it is simply the right thing to do. I hope the Senate will listen to law enforcement, families of crime victims, and advocates for justice and not abolish capital punishment."
