Advocacy Alert: Water Quality Protection Legislation Faces Veto Override Vote
September 9, 2022
The New Hampshire Legislature will meet on Thursday, September 15 to act on Governor Sununu’s vetoes from the 2022 session. Among the bills they will consider is House Bill 1454, which proposes to set in statute a formula for determining the distance for which a new landfill shall be located from a perennial river, lake, or coastal water.
The Forest Society supported this bill and testified in support of it during the bill’s hearings before the Legislature. Read our testimony here.
We encourage readers to email their representative in the NH House of Representatives and in the NH Senate and ask them to vote to override the veto of HB 1454.
