New Hampshire is one step closer to getting rid of the death penalty after the House overrode the governor’s veto of a repeal bill by the narrowest possible margin.

Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed the repeal bill in May after it passed the House and Senate with veto-proof majorities. The House voted to override the veto Thursday by a vote of 247-123, reaching the two-thirds majority needed by a single vote.
