Calling the paid family plan New Hampshire House members passed earlier in the day an “income tax,” Gov. Chris Sununu late Wednesday vowed not to sign such a bill.
“The Democrats’ mandatory paid leave plan is an income tax, and the citizens of New Hampshire have never and will never support that approach. I will never support an income tax. End of story,” Sununu tweeted around 7 p.m. Wednesday.
Earlier Wednesday, SB1 passed through the House by a count of 219-142.
Democrats said the legislation will create a program that gives businesses the flexibility to choose a paid leave plan that works best for them and their employees.
