Nothing But Crickets From Sununu on Anti-Trans Legislation
CONCORD, NH — Yesterday, thanks to the leadership of State House Democrats, two pieces of hateful, anti-trans legislation were halted. HB 10, the bill that would forcibly “out” transgender students, and HB 417, which puts criminal penalties on individuals assisting trans youth seeking gender-affirming care, were both tabled.
When asked about the accompanying hateful legislation in the State Senate, Sununu did not comment.
In response, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:
“Granite Staters want nothing to do with the hateful, anti-LBGTQ+ legislation that the NH GOP continues to push. Last year, Sununu said he’d veto this legislation. This year he won’t even comment on it. Sununu is laser-focused on building his national profile instead of protecting Granite Staters. Our trans youth need a governor who is going to protect them.”
