NFIB State Director Bruce Berke released the following statement in response to Governor Sununu’s veto of HB 293 and HB 211:

“Our members applaud Governor Sununu for vetoing this anti-employer legislation. If allowed to become law, the measures would have blocked employers from thoroughly screening job applicants. Credit and salary histories are a useful tool for determining early on in the hiring process whether someone would be a good candidate for a job. This is especially important for small businesses, which do not have large human resource departments to interview candidates only to discover they can’t afford to pay them as much as they expect or the applicant is not the right fit for a financial based position.”

“During the 2019 legislative session, there have been a myriad of potential new laws that would have increased the number of hurdles in the hiring process that would have produced little or no benefit to either the employee or the employer. House Bills 293 & 211 are perfect examples of unnecessary governmental interference in the private sector and on behalf of the hundreds of NFIB Members in NH, I thank the Governor for his recognition of this meddling.”
