Governor Sununu Statement on Death Penalty

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

"I have consistently stood with law enforcement, families of crime victims, and advocates for justice in opposing a repeal of the death penalty because it is the right thing to do. I am incredibly disappointed that the Senate chose to override my veto."
