Opponents of the death penalty in New Hampshire are hoping to repeal the state’s capital punishment law this year. Although the state legislature passed the repeal last year, it was vetoed by Gov. Chris Sununu. At the time, the Senate vote was two votes shy of a veto-proof majority.  

The House of Representatives passed a motion to repeal by 279-88 on March 7. A matching Senate bill looks likely to pass, as 16 of the 30 freshman senators have stated their support of repeal.
