The New Hampshire House has already passed the legalization bill once this year in a 209-147 vote. Unfortunately, while the first vote on HB 481 was lopsided, it did not reach the two-thirds majority that would be needed to override a veto. We urgently need to continue gaining momentum, so it is very important that representatives hear from supporters before the next vote, which will take place this Thursday.
Supporters are working hard to convince representatives who remain undecided on HB 481. Americans for Prosperity will host a phone bank this evening, Tuesday, April 2, from 5-8 p.m. at their offices in Manchester (340 Granite St. First Floor) and Portsmouth (767 Islington St. Second Floor), and ACLU-NH will host a phone bank tomorrow evening, Wednesday, April 3, from 6-8 p.m. at their office in Concord (18 Low Avenue). Please help out if you are able!
If you haven't already done so, please take a few moments to find out how your representative(s) voted and send them a follow-up message.
You can read a summary of the bill here, as amended by the Ways and Means Committee and approved in a 14-6 vote. Please share this message with your family and friends!
