Mental health care providers are reacting to Governor Chris Sununu’s veto of a bill that would have provided new money for mental health services in the state.

The bill, backed mostly by Democrats, would have spent $3.5 million to raise the rates that Medicaid pays out for mental health services and substance use disorder treatments.

In vetoing the bill, Sununu, a two-term Republican, said spending money right before the next state budget goes into effect would be redundant.
