Governor Lynch's Statement Regarding House's Rejection of So-Called Right-to-Work Bill

Statement

Governor John Lynch today issued the following statement regarding the House's failure to override HB 474, the so-called right-to-work bill:

"This bill would have directly interfered with the rights of businesses and their employees to freely negotiate contracts. Also, the debate over the so-called right-to-work bill in New Hampshire appears to have been largely driven by national outside interest groups, and was not a result of problems facing New Hampshire businesses or workers.

"For these reasons, and others, I vetoed the right-to-work bill in May. I am pleased that a bipartisan coalition of House members put the interest of New Hampshire and voted to sustain my veto."
