** ———————————————————— Dear Friend,
Thank you to the THOUSANDS of people who made it out to one of the many March for Our Lives across the state. It was inspiring to see so many Granite Staters, young and old, standing up to demand action on guns especially given the New Hampshire Republican’s refusal to pass even the most moderate gun safety legislation to keep our students safe.
The enthusiasm on Saturday and at the President (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=22ed4c2fa8&e=a40ec310b1) Trump (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=10b5465e8a&e=a40ec310b1) protest (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=7c7a144552&e=a40ec310b1) and Vice President (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=44216c0062&e=a40ec310b1) Mike Pence (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=7b92266759&e=a40ec310b1) protest (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=3676727a1f&e=a40ec310b1) are a testament to just how powerful our voices can be when we organize and speak out together. Let’s make sure we continue this momentum as we use our voices to vote Republicans out of office in November!

** Priority Hearings ———————————————————— This week marks the beginning of the crossover period in the State Legislature. All bills that were introduced in one chamber have been voted on and given to the other. This week is relatively quiet as a result. Things will begin to heat up once more next week.
Medicaid Expansion
Wednesday, March 28th, 2:00PM / Health, Human Services, and Elderly Affairs/ Room 205, Legislative Office Building
HOUSE- Health Human Services and Elderly Affairs- SB 313-FN, relative to reauthorizing Medicaid Expansion
Why this matters: The House HHS Committee will continue their hearings on the recently passed Senate Medicaid Expansion reauthorization proposal. In 2016, the reauthorization passed by only one vote in the House of Representatives. This program benefits over 50,000 Granite Staters and has proven to be one of our best tools fighting the opioid crisis. ACTION: Call your State Representative to make sure they’re committed to reauthorizing the Medicaid Expansion so that none of the 50,000 Granite Staters how rely on this program lose their insurance. Find your State Representative’s information HERE (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=a81e3791ec&e=a40ec310b1) . Annulment of Marijuana Arrests
Tuesday, March 27th, 9:45AM / Judiciary / Room 100, State House
SENATE – Judiciary – SB 1477-FN, relative to annulment of arrests or convictions for possession of 3/4 of an ounce of marijuana, or less
Why this matters: After the State House decriminalized possession of 3/4 of an ounce of marijuana last year, this bill seeks to annul any arrests or charges of this crime that have previously taken place. This bill would help clear the criminal records for many Granite Staters who have, based on the current law, committed no crime. ————————————————————
** Legislative Review ———————————————————— On Wednesday New Hampshire Republicans voted 14-9 along party lines to kill an amendment to SB 357 that would have allowed individual schools to ban guns. In turning down this amendment proposed by Democratic Senator Martha Hennessey, Senate Republicans let down the gallery full of high school students (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=1289a688a5&e=a40ec310b1) looking on along with the hundreds of students who signed a petition and students across the country who are fighting for common sense gun reform to prevent future tragedies.. Granite Staters from every corner of New Hampshire are standing up to NRA-bought Governor Chris Sununu and New Hampshire Republicans who are putting political donations ahead of our safety.
Also this week, Democratic State Representatives were able to overturn a destructive amendment to the Paid Family and Medical Leave legislation and passed a clean, financially solvent bill onto the Senate. The Republican-proposed and Sununu-endorsed amendment would have effectively ruined the program, but thanks to a Democratic-led bipartisan coalition, New Hampshire is one step closer to an established Paid Family and Medical Leave program. ————————————————————
** Platform Committee ———————————————————— We need your help. Over the next few months, the New Hampshire Democratic Party Platform Committee will travel around the State to hear from you on the content of our 2018 Platform. We are charged with building a Platform that finds the common ground among us, and helps make the case for why Democrats, Independents, and Republicans – our friends and neighbors – should support the Democratic vision for moving New Hampshire forward. The Platform is a statement of our principles and a direct appeal people of New Hampshire.
In an effort to hear from as many democrats as possible, the Committee has scheduled hearings across the state.

** ———————————————————— Dear Friend,
TOMORROW, President Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar are coming to New Hampshire to discuss the opioid epidemic.
Since taking office, Trump and Governor Sununu have both failed to deliver on their promises to combat the crisis. This visit highlights just how little they’ve done to give New Hampshire the resources it needs. Trump and Sununu need to learn that you can’t fix the opioid crisis with photo-ops.
Join us tomorrow, at Veterans Memorial Park (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=ae421b7bc5&e=a40ec310b1) in Manchester at 1 pm to tell Trump and Sununu: NO MORE BROKEN PROMISES!
Share and RSVP to the event by clicking HERE (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=94c4aec4f8&e=a40ec310b1) .

** Action Alert ———————————————————— Stand up to Vice President Pence and Governor Sununu! This Thursday, Vice President Mike Pence is coming to New Hampshire to hold an event on the Tax Reform bill (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=018b09db72&e=a40ec310b1) and to attend a fundraiser for Governor Sununu.
Join Granite State Progress and the New Hampshire Young Democrats to protest Pence’s visit and show them that Granite Staters will not accept their radical NRA-endorsed agenda that keep guns in the hands of dangerous individuals!
The protest will take place on Thursday, March 22nd from 5 pm – 7 pm outside the Radisson Hotel in Manchester. RSVP HERE (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=51116b1273&e=a40ec310b1) . ————————————————————
** On the Floor ————————————————————
Paid Family and Medical Leave
Wednesday, March 21st / House of Representatives / Full Vote
HOUSE – HB 628-FN, relative to establishing paid family and medical leave program
Why this matters: Last week, House Republicans added an amendment to HB 628 which destroyed the intentions and practicality of the original paid family and medical leave program. The House will be voting on this bill on Wednesday, where they will hopefully overturn this amendment and adopt the Democrat’s proposed amendment, which restores the integrity of the original plan.
Abortion Viability Ban
Wednesday, March 21st / House of Representatives / Full Vote
HOUSE – HB 1680-FN, relative to prohibiting abortions after viability
Why this matters: This bill would prohibit abortions after “viability,” an unscientific and baseless term that would effectively limit women’s access to abortions. This restriction is not only unconstitutional but dangerous. The vast majority of abortions take place before a woman is 20 weeks pregnant. When women have abortions after this period, it is because their lives or the lives of the fetus are in danger.
Voter Suppression
Wednesday, March 21st / House of Representatives / Floor Vote
HOUSE – HB 1543, relative to domicile of students for voting purposes
Why this matters: HB 1543 is the most egregious of the many Republican-proposed voter suppression bills. This legislation seeks to ban domiciled college students from voting in New Hampshire outright. This is an absurd assault on the sanctity of students’ voting rights and must be opposed.
Guns in Schools
Wednesday, March 21st / Senate / Floor Vote
SENATE – SB 357, relative to safe school zones
Why this matters: Despite a party-line vote to keep Senator Martha Hennessey’s amendment from SB 357, she will have a second change to add on her amendment, which would give schools the ability to ban schools on their campus, preceding the floor vote on this legislation. In the wake of the devastating Parkland shooting, this amendment is incredibly important to preventing mass shootings on school campuses.

** Priority Hearings ———————————————————— Medicaid Expansion
Tuesday, March 20th, 10:00AM / Health, Human Services, and Elderly Affairs/ Representatives Hall, State House
HOUSE – Health Human Services and Elderly Affairs- SB 313-FN, reauthorizing New Hampshire’s Medicaid Expansion program
Why this matters: On Tuesday, the House HHS Committee will begin hearings on the recently passed Senate Medicaid Expansion reauthorization proposal. In 2016, the reauthorization passed by only one vote in the House of Representatives. This program benefits over 50,000 Granite Staters and has proven to be one of our best tools fighting the opioid crisis. ————————————————————
** Legislative Review ———————————————————— Last week, the State House of Representatives accepted an amendment (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=6ca131d046&e=a40ec310b1) to New Hampshire’s 10-year transportation improvement program that reinstalled a commuter rail study in the program. While Governor Sununu takes every possible position on commuter rail in an attempt to both parrot Republican-sanctioned talking points and to please corporations, the New Hampshire State House stood firm in their decision to do what’s right for Granite Staters. The bill now heads to the Senate.
Also last week, on the same day as students in New Hampshire and across the country walked out of their classes to protest the lack of legislative action on guns, the New Hampshire Senate Education Committee voted on party lines (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=a9738609d5&e=a40ec310b1) to reject Democratic Senator Martha Hennessey’s amendment (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=ff29cfce9e&e=a40ec310b1) to SB 357 that would give schools the right to ban guns on their campuses. She will have another chance to introduce the amendment this week, but it is clear the only way to strengthen New Hampshire’s gun laws is to kick Sununu and Republican representatives out of office and replace them with legislators who take gun violence seriously. ————————————————————

Commuter Rail
House of Representatives / Full Vote
HOUSE – HB 2018, relative to the state 10-year transportation improvement program
Why this matters: Last week, New Hampshire Republicans removed commuter rail from this 10 year proposal despite its overwhelming popularity. They will vote on the final bill this week where there is the chance a last minute amendment will be added to include rail in the proposal.
Abortion Viability Ban
House of Representatives / Full Vote
HOUSE – HB 1680-FN, relative to prohibiting abortions after viability
Why this matters: This bill would prohibit abortions after “viability,” an unscientific and baseless term that would effectively limit women’s access to abortions.

When women have abortions after this period, it is because their lives or the lives of the fetus are in danger.
Urging the pardon of Jerry DeLemus
House of Representatives / Floor Vote
HOUSE – HCR 11, urging the pardon of Jerry DeLemus
Why this matters: Jerry DeLemus is currently in jail after famously (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=c3af615c8b&e=a40ec310b1) aiding anti-government white supremacist Cliven Bundy in a standoff against the federal government in Nevada. DeLemus is the founding member of the fringe right-wing group, Rochester 9/12, which Governor Sununu secretly met with last Summer.
Online Voter Registration
House of Representatives / Floor Votes
House – HB 1772, permitting online voter registration
Why this matters: Amidst a sea of New Hampshire Republican attempts to restrict the voting rights of Granite Staters, this Democrat-sponosred bill would allow eligible voters to register to vote online. 38 states currently allow for online voter registration, a process that streamlines and simplifies voter registration.

** Priority Hearings ———————————————————— Guns in Schools
Tuesday, March 13th, 10:00AM / Education / Representatives Hall, State House
SENATE- EDUCATION – SB 357, relative to safe school zones
Why this matters: During this hearing, the Senate Education committee will be hearing testimony on Democratic State Senator Martha Hennessey’s amendment that would give schools the ability to ban schools on their campus. In the wake of the devastating Parkland shooting, this amendment is incredibly important in preventing mass shootings on school campuses. ————————————————————
** Legislative Review ———————————————————— Last week, the New Hampshire Senate voted 17-7 in favor of SB 313, a bill that seeks to reauthorize New Hampshire’s Medicaid expansion program, which currently covers more than 50,000 Granite Staters. Democrats rightfully expressed concerns about the toughest hourly work requirement in the country, and are working steadily to ensure that nobody loses coverage under the reauthorization program, something the Republican leadership has agreed to. The reauthorization now heads to the House of Representatives.
Also last week, Democrats in the New Hampshire House carried through a transgender rights bill that was tabled at the hands of Republicans a year earlier. This is an outstanding step in the pursuit of equal protection for transgender Granite Staters. Thank you to everyone who came forward to create the groundswell of activism and enthusiasm for these basic protections and human rights. HB 1319 now heads to the Senate.

** ———————————————————— Dear Friend,
On Tuesday, Democrat Phil Spagnuolo won the Laconia special election!!
Phil defeated Republican candidate Les Cartier 968-841 (54%-46%) in the same district that Donald Trump won by 13 points and Chris Sununu won by 10 points. This is the 9th special election in 11 tries that New Hampshire Democrats have won since Sununu took office, and the 5th seat that’s flipped from red to blue.
Thank you to everyone who knocked doors, made phone calls, or wrote letters to help Phil on his campaign.
Phil’s victory is an important reminder that Democrats can win in any district and that if we keep up this energy and hard work (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=58289ad603&e=a40ec310b1) , we’ll win back the Governorship, Executive Council, and State House in 2018!

** Action Alert ———————————————————— Town Meeting Day March 13th is Town Meeting Day in New Hampshire! This year, the NHDP has worked with Town and County Committees to recruit and elect Democrats to run for local office. 2017 proved that every district can be competitive. Change starts at the local level.
Let’s make sure that we have a successful Town Meeting Day and elect an incredible slate of Democrats!

————————————————————
** On the Floor ———————————————————— The House will be voting on the following bills beginning on Tuesday, March 6th through Thursday, March 8th Child Marriage
House of Representatives / Floor Vote
HOUSE – HB 1287, relative to the age at which persons may marry
Why this matters: Last year, a Democratic-sponsored bill to raise the legal marriage age from 13 for girls and 14 for boys was derailed thanks to Republican opposition. The bill is once again up for consideration as House Democrats work to end the antiquated and dangerous practice of child marriage by raising the legal age of marriage to 16 and 17
Transgender Civil Rights
House of Representatives / Floor Vote
HOUSE – HB 1319, prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity
Why this matters: This is the second bill in two years that seeks to preventing transgender discrimination. Last year, Republicans forcibly tabled this bill, keeping it from even coming up for a vote. Governor Sununu’s sole response was that he had “no personal opinion” on the matter. Now, this Democrat-supported legislation has another chance to pass, which would secure transgendercivil rights under the law.
Commuter Rail
House of Representatives / Full Vote
HOUSE – HB 2018, relative to the state 10-year transportation improvement program
Why this matters: Last week, New Hampshire Republicans removed commuter rail from this 10 year proposal despite its overwhelming popularity. They will vote on the final bill this week where there is the chance a last minute amendment will be added to include rail in the proposal.
Abortion Viability Ban
House of Representatives / Full Vote
HOUSE – HB 1680-FN, relative to prohibiting abortions after viability

This restriction is not only unconstitutional but dangerous. The vast majority of abortions take place before a woman is 20 weeks pregnant. When women have abortions after this period, it is because their lives or the lives of the fetus are in danger.
Voter Suppression
House of Representatives / Full Vote
HOUSE – HB 1264, relative to domiciled registrants voting rights
Why this matters: HB 1264 is HB 372’s twin. It is a glorified poll tax that would force domiciled residents and legal voters to pay fees in order to comply with this legislation. This is just the latest in a series of attempts by New Hampshire Republicans to disenfranchise legal voters. Join the New Hampshire Campaign for Voting Rights efforts to take action (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=6a4281ace4&e=a40ec310b1) .
Gender Confirmation Surgery for Minors
House of Representatives / Full Vote
HOUSE – HB 1532, prohibiting gender reassignment surgery for minors
Why this matters: This Republican-sponsored bill is a blatant attempt to infringe on the rights of transgender men and women. It is completely unacceptable that legislators would try and prevent men and women from undergoing a procedure to confirm their gender identity because of their age.
Urging the pardon of Jerry DeLemus
House of Representatives / Floor Vote
HOUSE – HCR 11, urging the pardon of Jerry DeLemus
Why this matters: Jerry DeLemus is currently in jail after famously (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=37c180bfa5&e=a40ec310b1) aiding anti-government white supremacist Cliven Bundy in a standoff against the federal government in Nevada. DeLemus is the founding member of the fringe right-wing group, Rochester 9/12, which Governor Sununu secretly met with last Summer.

** Priority Hearings ———————————————————— Medicaid Expansion
Tuesday, March 6th, 1:00PM / Finance / Room 103, State House
SENATE- FINANCE- SB 313-FN, reauthorizing New Hampshire’s Medicaid Expansion program
Why this matters: On Tuesday the Finance Committee will finalize and vote on reauthorizing New Hampshire’s Medicaid Expansion program. In 2016, the reauthorization passed by only one vote in the House of Representatives. This program benefits over 50,000 Granite Staters and has proven to be one of our best tools fighting the opioid crisis. After it leaves the Finance Committee, it is expected this will be voted on by Thursday in the Senate. ————————————————————

NHDP Grassroots Newsletter – 2/26

View this email in your browser

Dear Friend,

Phil Spagnuolo’s special election in Laconia is TOMORROW, FEBRUARY 27th!

Phil Spagnuolo has been involved in Laconia’s community since moving there in 1979 with his family. He is a founding member of Navigating Recovery, working as part of the grassroots community group since March 2016, and has been a full time Recovery Support Worker since January 2017. Phil is passionate about being an advocate for those suffering from substance use disorder and uses his own journey of recovery to help others.

Let’s work together in these final two days to Get Out the Vote by making calls and knocking doors.

Last year, we won 8 out of 10 special elections because Democrats have put in the work and made sure that those few votes that decided the election went our way. Let’s make sure we kick off 2018 with yet another special election win by electing Phil as our next State Representative!

Click HERE to sign up to help out by knocking doors or making calls. Email McKenzie St. Germain at mstgermain@nhdp.org with any questions.

Please continue to use this regular newsletter as a tool for your local committee meetings or as a supplement to your own regular newsletter.

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

Action Alert

Town Meeting Day

March 13th is Town Meeting Day in New Hampshire! This year, the NHDP has worked with Town and County Committees to recruit and elect Democrats to run for local office. 2017 proved that every district can be competitive. Change starts at the local level.

Let’s make sure that we have a successful Town Meeting Day and elect an incredible slate of Democrats!

To get involved or if you’re interested in volunteering for your local candidates – reach out to Erin Turmelle at eturmelle@nhdp.org

Call Governor Sununu

The State Legislature is on break this week, but you can still take action by calling Governor Sununu (603-271-2121) and holding him accountable for his actions (or lack thereof) on the following issues:
Gun safety legislation – In the wake of the Parkland shooting, Sununu has refused overwhelming calls to pass gun safety legislation, calling them a “gut reaction.” This NRA  “A”-rated Governor made his first legislative priority passing concealed carry in New Hampshire.
HB 372 – After initially saying he “hated” this bill, Sununu has walked back and moderated his stance, sending a clear signal to New Hampshire Republicans that he’ll ultimately support this modern-day poll tax that will disenfranchise legal college voters.
SB 193 – This unconstitutional school voucher bill would divert public funds to unregulated schools like the Tri-City Christian Academy, which just last year banned a student (who was on track to be valedictorian) for being transgender and create a segregated school system.
Gay Conversion Therapy Ban – This bill passed the New Hampshire House with overwhelming Democratic support, while 90% of the Republican caucus opposed the measure that would keep minors from being subjected to traumatizing conversion therapy. Governor Sununu has given a tacit endorsement of the proposal but hasn’t done anything to actively support this incredibly important piece of legislation.
State Workers’ Contract – It’s been over 240 days since Governor Sununu walked away from negotiations with New Hampshire’s State Workers, forcing thousands of employees to go to work with shoddy supplies for a governor they know doesn’t support them.

Be sure to call your State Representative and Governor Sununu’s office (603-271-2121) directly, to register your opinions on these important issues. If you’d like to attend one of these hearings or find out when the next session will take place, email Sue Ford (sueford06@gmail.com)

Legislative Review

This week, with Governor Sununu’s approval, the Republican-led House Committee on Public Works and Highways removed commuter rail from New Hampshire’s 10-year transportation plan. In recent months, Governor Sununu has flipped, flopped, and flipped on the issue, calling it a “boondoggle” before supporting it in the hope that it would inspire Amazon to come to New Hampshire. After Amazon’s rejection of New Hampshire’s bid, Sununu walked back his support, saying “it’s in the legislature’s hands” and Republican Representative Al Baldasaro told WMUR that Sununu “won’t lose sleep over it because he’s got other priorities.”

Governor Sununu has changed his position on commuter rail so many times, it’s a wonder he knows where he ultimately stands on the issue. Instead of doing any research into the project in the first place or listening to the small businesses or mayors who support rail, Sununu stumbled along for years spouting partisan talking points regardless of what his constituents wanted.

New Hampshire deserves a governor who will invest in our economic future and listen to the small businesses that make up the backbone of our state’s economy, not one who toes the party line at all costs. Come November, voters will be sure to remember this betrayal in the voting booths.

Platform Committee

In the coming weeks, the NHDP Platform Committee will be holding meetings across the state to prepare and propose the New Hampshire Democratic Party Platform for 2018-2019 to the State Convention.

We’ll keep you updated with the times, dates, and locations of these meetings.

If you would like more information on the Platform Committee, please refer to the NHDP Constitution HERE.

Upcoming Events

This winter and upcoming spring, the NHDP staff is hitting the road for thirteen County Summits that will be packed with trainings and discussions relevant to strategic planning for 2018 elections! With more than 50% of statewide local committee officers being new members this year we are traveling the state to provide the training and organizing skills that will lay the foundation for success in 2018. We have the momentum, we are fine tuning our skills, and we are building our capacity in every town and county.

Today, Governor Sununu introduced a “school safety” task force, but in the wake of the Parkland school shooting, Sununu forgot about one big thing…

He forgot to mention guns even once.

NHDP Grassroots Newsletter – 2/19

View this email in your browser

Dear Friend,
Happy President’s Day!

This holiday is meant to honor our nation’s first President, George Washington, a man who fought to free our nation of tyranny, respected the Constitution and the limitations it placed on him, and even created many of the extra-constitutional norms that made our country the most admired democracy in the world.

President Trump has done much to disgrace the office George Washington once held, but few things are as disappointing as his reaction to the devastating Parkland shooting that left 17 children dead. His severe lack of empathy and unwillingness to push for action highlights just how much is at stake in the upcoming elections.

We are still a long way off before the 2020 presidential election, but the 2018 midterms are just around the corner. Over the next nine months, let’s remember to stay focused and work to elect a Congress that will hold our President accountable and a Governor & State House that will protect New Hampshire from Trump’s radical policies.

Please continue to use this regular newsletter as a tool for your local committee meetings or as a supplement to your own regular newsletter.  

As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

Let America Vote Phone Bank with Jason Kander

Join Jason Kander TOMORROW at a Let America Vote phone bank calling Governor Sununu to urge him to oppose HB 372, which would establish a modern day poll tax (and its 2018 twin, HB 1264). It’s so important that we work together to stop Republicans in the state legislature from their continuous attacks on eligible Granite Staters voting rights. If you can’t make it to Manchester you can still call from home. The event will take place tomorrow, February 20th, from 5pm – 7pm. RSVP HERE and please bring your phone and laptop!

Priority Hearings

Medicaid Expansion

Tuesday, February 20th, 1:30PM / Finance / Representative’s Hall

SENATE- FINANCE- SB 313-FN, reauthorizing New Hampshire’s Medicaid Expansion program

Why this matters: New Hampshire’s Medicaid Expansion program is up for reauthorization this year. After the Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted down the Democrat-sponsored Medicaid Expansion plan last week, the Republican plan is now up for debate in the Senate. In 2016, the reauthorization passed by only one vote in the House of Representatives. This program benefits over 50,000 Granite Staters and has proven to be one of our best tools fighting the opioid crisis.

Birth Control Insurance Coverage

Tuesday, February 20th, 1:45PM / Commerce / Room 100, State House

SENATE – Commerce – SB 421, relative to insurance coverage for birth control

Why this matters: Democratic Senator Donna Soucy has taken the lead on this bipartisan bill that seeks to secure rights for women to access birth control without jumping through extra hoops with their insurance plans. In the face of federal attacks on women’s rights to access birth control, this bill would shore up New Hampshire women’s ability to access birth control at no cost and allow them to to receive a 12 month dissension in a single pharmacy visit.


Be sure to call your State Representative and Governor Sununu’s office (603-271-2121) directly, to register your opinions on these important issues. If you’d like to attend one of these hearings or find out when the next session will take place, email Sue Ford (sueford06@gmail.com)

On the Floor

Urging the pardon of Jerry DeLemus

Thursday, February 22nd / House of Representatives / Floor Vote

HOUSE – HCR 11, urging the pardon of Jerry DeLemus

Why this matters: Jerry DeLemus is currently in jail after famously aiding anti-government white supremacist Cliven Bundy in a standoff against the federal government in Nevada. DeLemus is the founding member of the fringe right-wing group, Rochester 9/12, which Governor Sununu secretly met with last Summer.

Phasing out the interest and dividends tax

Thursday, February 22nd / Senate / Floor Vote

SENATE – SB 404, phasing out the tax on interest in dividends

Why this matters: This Republican-sonsored bill is just the latest example of New Hampshire Republicans only cutting taxes for those at the top. Less than one year ago, Governor Sununu signed his budget that gave a $100 million tax cut to the wealthiest 3% of corporations instead of funding workforce development or job training. Clearly, the Republicans are only looking out for their wealthy family, friends, and corporate donors.

Annulling prior marijuana arrests

Thursday, February 22nd / House of Representatives / Floor Vote

HOUSE- HB 1477, annulling arrests or convictions for possession of 3/4 of an ounce of marijuana or less

Why this matters: When the New Hampshire legislature decriminalized the possession of 3/4 of an ounce of marijuana or less last year, they declared that act acceptable in our state. It is now only right to apply this same standard to those who have been previously convicted of this crime.


To receive status updates for these bills or to learn when the House will next be in session, email Sue Ford (sueford06@gmail.com)

Legislative Review

Last week, New Hampshire Senate Republicans voted along party lines to kill a Senate Democrats’ amendment to New Hampshire’s Constitution, requiring the governor to fully fund the alcohol fund at 5%. This fund has played a vital role in New Hampshire’s fight against the opioid epidemic. Last year, Governor Sununu ignored Democratic objections and only funded the alcohol fund at 3.7%.

Senate Republicans also rejected the RESCUE Act on a party line vote. This bill was introduced last fall with the support of every single New Hampshire Senate Democrat and sought to access 10% of the $100 million Rainy Day Fund to provide additional resources in the fight the opioid epidemic, using no new fees and taxes and taking nothing away from the general fund. New Hampshire has the 3rd-highest per-capita opioid overdose death rate in America.

Sununu Reality Check

In his State of the State speech last Thursday, Governor Sununu consistently manipulated his record to try to create the appearance he’s doing anything other than looking out for his wealthy family, friends, donors, and corporations while in office.

NHDP Grassroots Newsletter – 2/12

View this email in your browser (mailchi.mp/nhdp/nhdp-grassroots-newsletter-550259?e=a40ec310b1)
** ———————————————————— Dear Friend, This coming Thursday, February 15th at 10:00AM, Governor Sununu will deliver his annual State of the State address to the New Hampshire House and Senate. In his speech, Sununu will likely continue his pattern of spouting empty rhetoric and making useless promises, while completely ignoring the fact that his leadership led New Hampshire to lose jobs for the first time since the Recession.
In 2017, New Hampshire was one of only two states in the entire country that lost jobs. This job loss came after Sununu passed a budget that included an $100 million tax cut for the wealthiest 3% of corporations at the expense of funding workforce development or job training.
During his speech, help us hold Sununu accountable. Follow, share, and retweet @NHDems and @SununuRealityCheck, who will be fact-checking Sununu’s claims live. Let’s make sure Sununu can’t hide from the real impact he’s had on our state. Please continue to use this regular newsletter as a tool for your local committee meetings or as a supplement to your own regular newsletter.
As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

SENATE – CACR 21, constitutionally require a 5% fully funded alcohol fund
Why this matters: New Hampshire has the third highest overdose death rate in the entire country, and yet Governor Sununu failed to fully fund the alcohol fund in last year’s budget. This bill would make it a constitutional requirement to provide full funding for the alcohol fund, ensuring that our government devotes its full capacity towards combatting this crisis.
Withdrawal from the Voter Crosscheck Program
Thursday, February 15th / Senate / Floor Vote
SENATE – SB 439, relative to repealing the authority to share voter information or data with other states
Why this matters: This bill seeks to end New Hampshire’s involvement in the faulty Crosscheck Program, founded by voter fraud conspiracy theorist and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, and established in New Hampshire by Secretary of State Bill Gardner. This program’s stated purpose is to work with states to find voters registered in multiple states. However, this crosscheck program has leaked people’s voter information, has a 99% false positive rate, and even Kobach’s state of Kansas has decided not to use the program any longer. Instead of relying on this faulty program, New Hampshire should instead adopt a more reliable program like ERIC, which safely guards voter files and makes sure election results are fair and accurate.
Presidential Tax Returns
Thursday, February 15th / SENATE / Floor Vote
SENATE – SB 362, requiring Presidential and Vice Presidential candidates to release their tax returns
Why this matters: This Democrat-sponsored bill would require all candidates for President and Vice President to release their federal income taxes. As the First in the Nation primary state, New Hampshire has always taken the election of presidential candidates seriously. With this bill, Granite Staters would continue this tradition by requiring candidates to be transparent and to allow voters to see and understand the financial ties and obligations of anyone running for President.

** Priority Hearings ———————————————————— Transgender Civil Rights
Tuesday, February 13th, 10:00AM / Judiciary / Representative’s Hall
HOUSE – Judiciary – HB 1319, prohibiting discrimination based on gender identity
Why this matters: After hundreds of activists attended the preliminary hearing two weeks ago to support HB 1319, which seeks to ban transgender discrimination, the final hearing will be held this Tuesday so those who weren’t able to present testimony have a second chance to do so. This is the second bill in two years that seeks to preventing transgender discrimination. Last year, Republicans tabled this bill, keeping it from even coming up for a vote. Governor Sununu’s sole response was that he had “no personal opinion” on the matter. Now, this Democrat-supported legislation has another chance to pass, which would secure transgender civil rights under the law.
Commuter Rail
Tuesday, February 13th, 10:00AM / Public Works and Highways / Room 201, Legislative Office Building
HOUSE – Public Works and Highways – HB 2018, relative to the state 10-year transportation improvement program
Why this matters: The Public Works and Highways committee will have a final public hearing on HB 2018, which will decide the fate of commuter rail, at 10:00AM before transitioning to a work session at 11:00AM. After reversing his prior opposition to commuter rail in an attempt to woo Amazon, Governor Sununu included a study for the train system in New Hampshire’s 10-year transportation improvement program. Now that his bid failed, he’s once more abandoned his support, saying it’s up to the legislature. This plan will be debated at this meeting where the Committee will ultimately decide whether to include the rail study in the final proposal.

** Legislative Review ————————————————————
Last Thursday, Democrats in the New Hampshire House led the effort to pass a ban on conversion therapy. The measure, HB 587, passed 179-171 (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=ee7d736a44&e=a40ec310b1) with Democrats voting unanimously in support of the ban while 171 Republicans (90% of all Republicans voting on the bill) voted to continue the abusive practice. This vote brings us one step closer to ensuring that the state recognizes children for who they are rather than discouraging them from embracing their identity. HB 587 now heads to the House Committee on Health, Human Services and Elderly Affairs.
The House of Representatives also voted last week to move forward with HB 628, which would establish a Paid Family and Medical Leave program in the state of New Hampshire. This bill aims to provide families with the opportunity to seek medical treatment for themselves and their families without fear of losing their jobs. It now heads to the House Finance Committee for further hearings.
Finally, on Thursday the Republican-controlled New Hampshire House voted to send HB 1811 to Interim Study, effectively killing the House proposal to reauthorize the New Hampshire Health Protection Program, the state’s version of Medicaid Expansion. This result is disappointing but we’re hopeful the State Legislature will come to a bipartisan agreement on an issue that affects more than 50,000 Granite Staters and serves as a crucial tool to combat the opioid crisis. ————————————————————

NHDP Grassroots Newsletter – 2/5

** ———————————————————— Dear Friend, Last week, President Trump continued to push (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=1e6fa8a93b&e=a40ec310b1) his baseless voter fraud conspiracy, this time expanding his theory that he lost in New Hampshire because of voter fraud to include accusations of bused in voters from Massachusetts AND Connecticut.
Governor Sununu, whopropagated a voter fraud conspiracy (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=ce527bcb6f&e=a40ec310b1) himself, and the New Hampshire Republicans will almost definitely use Trump’s comments as fuel to their growing fire on their voter suppression efforts, which already resulted in SB 3 (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=25e85bfe15&e=a40ec310b1) .
This year, New Hampshire Republicans have introduced three bills that would suppress the student vote: HB 372 (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=249c7e0d46&e=a40ec310b1) and HB 1264, which both function as modern day poll taxes, and HB 1543, which would deny the right of college students to vote outright.
These attacks on our voting rights are an assault on our democracy and in the coming months we must all work together to make sure they don’t pass. Please continue to use this regular newsletter as a tool for your local committee meetings or as a supplement to your own regular newsletter.
As always, don’t hesitate to reach out to us with any questions you may have.

** On the Floor ———————————————————— Gay Conversion Therapy Ban
Wednesday, February 7th / House of Representatives / Floor Vote
HOUSE – HB 587, relative to conversion therapy seeking to change a person’s sexual orientation
Why this matters: Weeks ago, Republican Speaker Gene Chandler cast two tie-breaking votes to continue the practice of gay conversion therapy for minors. On Wednesday, the legislature has another chance to ban this archaic and destructive practice.
Paid Family and Medical Leave
Wednesday, February 7th / House of Representatives / Floor Vote
HOUSE – HB 628-FN, relative to a family and medical leave insurance program
Why this matters: This legislation would bring paid family and medical leave to New Hampshire. HB 628 seeks to provide families with the opportunity to seek medical treatment for themselves and their families without fear of losing their jobs.
Medicaid Expansion
Wednesday, February 7th / House of Representatives / Floor Vote
HOUSE – HB 1811-FN-A, relative to Medicaid Expansion reauthorization
Why this matters: New Hampshire’s Medicaid Expansion program is up for reauthorization this year. In 2016, the reauthorization passed by only one vote in the House of Representatives. This program benefits over 50,000 Granite Staters and has proven to be one of our best tools fighting the opioid crisis.
Condemning Hate Crimes
Wednesday, February 7th / House of Representatives / Floor Vote
HOUSE – HCR 13, relative to condemning hate crimes and any other form of racism in New Hampshire
Why this matters: In the wake of a New Hampshire resident playing a leading role in the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville and an attempted lynching of a biracial child in Claremont, this concurrent resolution would send a message that there is no place for racism or hate crimes in our state.
———————————————————— These bills are all scheduled for votes on Wednesday, February 7th. However, the Legislature may delay some of these votes to Thursday, February 8th.
To receive status updates for these bills or to learn when the House will next be in session, email Sue Ford (sueford06@gmail.com) ————————————————————
** Priority Hearings ———————————————————— Marcy’s Law
Tuesday, February 6th, 9:00AM / Judiciary / Room 101, Legislative Office Building
SENATE – CACR22, relating to rights for crime victims
Why this matters: This proposed amendment to the New Hampshire Constitution would allow survivors to be notified of all court proceedings involving their offender, giving them a chance to attend or participate. The amendment has received bipartisan support, with Democrats making a huge push to give victims the rights they deserve.

Despite his supposed “zero tolerance” policy on sexual misconduct, Governor Sununu has been silent about the members of his own party who have been accused of serial sexual assault and harassment. The New Hampshire Democratic Party has called on Sununu to condemn the behavior of three Republican elected officials with ties to the New Hampshire governor, but Sununu has deflected, ignored or refused all requests.
We put a clock up on the Sununu Reality Check website (nhdp.us14.list-manage.com/track/click?u=87754acc3a59e6e54932b1260&id=2248d1a133&e=a40ec310b1) tracking the days that Governor Sununu has remained silent on three major cases of sexual misconduct: RNC Finance Chair Steve Wynn, State Rep.
