AFPNH - RGGI Repeal Vetoed by Governor Lynch


As we all continue into our busy summers, I wanted to provide you with a brief update from AFP-NH.

First, the latest legislation containing the RGGI Repeal was vetoed TODAY by Governor Lynch. As you may remember, the RGGI Repeal was included in S.B. 154, the Shoreland Protection Act, which was passed by the Senate last month.  Governor Lynch’s veto will send the bill back to the Legislature for a possible override.  We will need your help to override this veto and remove New Hampshire from RGGI! I will keep you posted on when we should take action to pull the plug on RGGI.

In other legislative news, I am pleased to announce that yesterday Governor Lynch signed into law one of the bills AFP-NH has been tracking that would return more control to taxpayers on their local budgets by allowing cities and towns to adopt spending caps. Click here to learn more about S.B. 2 and how it will make government more accountable.

Secondly, this Saturday morning, July 9, I will be on GrokTalk with Skip Murphy. I always enjoy discussing the latest political news with Skip. I am sure this time will be no exception. As you may know, AFP Foundation recently honored Skip at our annual RightOnline Conference as the “Activist of the Year.” You can read more about it at THIS LINK.

Third, I recently appeared on the Londonderry Access Community Television Program, “Chattin’ Presidentially with Jeanine.” Please use THIS LINK to learn more and view the segment.

Fourth, please continue to visit our website and Facebook page for updates and information on AFP-NH actions and activities like the recent piece that I wrote regarding the end of the legislative session.

Finally, to the left you will see the updated version of our Granite State Gatherings section.  

I appreciate your time and interest in our efforts and look forward to seeing you around the state this summer.
