NHDP Statement on Senate Republicans’ Support for Misguided Hobby Lobby Decision

Concord, N.H. – Former New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Kathy Sullivan released the following statement after Senate Republicans voted to kill SB 42, which would require employee notification for changes in contraceptive coverage.
“It’s shocking that Senate Republicans stood up to support the misguided Hobby Lobby decision that puts employers between a woman and her doctor.”
“Even worse, Senate Republicans killed a commonsense bill that would have required employers to disclose to all workers and job applicants if they have a policy of denying workers coverage that meets their full range of health needs.”
“Republican Senators like Jerry Little, Jeanie Forrester and Kevin Avard will be held accountable by voters in their districts for today’s backward vote.”
