New Hampshire has never taken rights away from people and now is not the time to start certainly not now during these very tough economic times. Please let us know how the call went at info@nhftm.org./p>p>The bill may pass the NH House and Senate. If it dos the Governor will veto the bill. The bill will not become law unless both the NH House and Senate can override the veto. To override the Governorrsquo;s veto it takes 2/3 of those present both in the NH House and Senate to vote to override. With full attendance that would be 266 of 400 House members and 16 of 24 Senators voting to override. It would take 134 House members to vote no( nay) to block.
