Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed Senate Bill Senate Bill 99 on Friday, saying his action would prevent upward pressure on workers’ compensation premiums but bill supporters said would not allow partially disabled employees to be made “whole.”
The veto and fight over it, which will play out on the Senate, and perhaps the House floor next week, hinges on the addition of two words in the definition of gainful employment: “similarly remunerative.” But the controversy dates to a state Supreme Court opinion in 2010.
