Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire comments on House rejection of legislative oversight in approval process of state union contracts
Today, the House voted 191-135 rejecting SB 153, a bill that would have offered legislative oversight through the fiscal committee with collective bargaining agreements entered into by the state.
Kristin Beaulieu, Director of Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement on the House decision to reject this bill.
"Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire is disappointed that the House was unwilling to include the fiscal committee into collective bargaining agreements entered into the state. This bill would have required the state to follow the same approval process that is expected at the county and local level and provided integrity and transparency into the process."
