Following today’s House successful vote to override Governor Chris Sununu’s veto of legislation repealing the death penalty, the Coalition is asking all of its members to write or call their House Reps who voted for the override, especially those Republicans who stood firm against intense pressure from the governor and the party to change their vote. Please find the roll call here.
We’re also asking that you write your pro-repeal Senators ASAP – handwritten notes are especially helpful for the Republicans. Please keep your messages nonpartisan and brief. You can find the Senate roll call here – click on individual names in this list to locate their contact information.
The pro-repeal House Republicans who held firm from the March House vote to the Override vote include:
Vincent Paul Migliore
One Republican was excused in March, but voted yea in May: Kevin Verville
We invite everyone to a large public vigil at the State House next Thursday, May 30 starting at 9 AM. The Senate session will begin at 10 AM, and we expect the override to be taken up early in the session.
