Governor Lynch's Veto Message Regarding SB 3


Location: Unknown

By the authority vested in me, pursuant to part II, Article 44 of the New Hampshire Constitution, on June 15, 2011, I vetoed SB 3, making comprehensive changes to the state retirement system.

Even as this bill sits on my desk with a deadline of today, members of the ongoing conference committee on HB 1 and HB 2 have publicly announced that they will consider substantive changes to this legislation, a version of which is already included in HB 2. Those changes include potentially addressing decisions made yesterday by the Board of the Retirement System that could impact the budgets of the state and local communities.

Given the legislature's stated intent to change this legislation further, and my responsibility to review the legislation in its full and final form, I am vetoing Senate Bill 3 and will assess the legislature's final product.
