New Hampshire moved one step closer to repealing the death penalty on Thursday, as the House of Representatives voted to override a veto of the repeal measure by Gov. Chris Sununu in a 247-123 vote, just meeting the two-thirds requirement.
In an unusual move, Speaker Steve Shurtleff, D-Concord, voted with the Democratic caucus, saying he feels strongly on the issue. The speaker usually only votes to break a tie, but is empowered to vote at any time.
