Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed a bill to increase funds to substance abuse and mental health treatment providers Friday, frustrating the bill’s supporters and some providers who said the bill would have provided much-needed temporary aid.
Senate Bill 5, passed by both chambers in early May, would have set aside $3 million in short-term funds to allow the Department of Health and Human Services to raise reimbursement rates to those providers under Medicaid and Medicaid expansion.
