House Concurs with Senate Version; Bill Now Goes to Governor's Desk
Concord, NH - This morning, the NH House voted to concur with the Senate version of the Right-to-Work bill, 225-140. The bill now goes to Governor Lynch's desk for either signature or veto.
Cornerstone Executive Director, Kevin Smith, made the following remarks following this development:
"We urge Governor Lynch, in the strongest possible manner, to sign this jobs-creation bill. Research shows that the 23 other Right-to-Work states attract many good manufacturing companies, who would otherwise pass by those states if they weren't Right-to-Work. Especially in this economy, New Hampshire could use good manufacturing and other jobs that would be created as a result of this bill. In addition, while this bill does not end the right to unionize, it allows individuals the freedom to decide whether or not joining a union is right for them, as opposed to being forced to pay into the union regardless."
