The New Hampshire House took a major step toward repealing the state’s death penalty Thursday morning.

On a 247-123 vote, the House cleared the two-thirds majority necessary to override Gov. Chris Sununu’s veto of a death penalty repeal bill.

The state Senate will now schedule its own veto override vote, likley next week. The Senate passed the repeal bill in April by a 17-6 vote.
