Legislature Set to Convene Next Week

Gov.-elect Sununu’s Inauguration Day is Thursday

The House and Senate will convene on Wednesday and on Thursday, Jan. 5, 2017, Gov.-elect Chris Sununu will be inaugurated. After that, the legislature can get down to business. Legislative Service Requests, or LSRs, are becoming bills, and by next Friday, we should have fairly complete picture of what bills will be coming.

Sununu will host the traditional reception with state employees on Thursday morning from 7:30-9 a.m. in the Executive Council Chambers at the State House, and all are encouraged to stop by for coffee and conversation with the governor-elect. Inauguration ceremonies are set for noon on Thursday at the State House.

Stay in the Loop this Session with Political Updates

Early on we’ll be focused on so-called right to work bills and other proposed laws that will suppress working families. We’re also supporting some important legislation and we’ll be pushing for some changes during the budget process. We’ll work to keep you on top of it all on a weekly basis in our political update, Unstoppable Together. This update was previously known as State House Bulletin, so if you’ve subscribed to that, you don’t need to do anything else.
