This week, Senate Bill 3 will land on the desk of Gov. John Lynch, having been passed by both the New Hampshire House and the Senate.
If signed by the governor, SB 3 will overhaul the entire New Hampshire public-employee pension plan, including a 2 percent increase to contribution rates for state and local government employees and teachers. Police officers and firefighters will be forced to increase their contributions by 2.25 percent and 2.5 percent, respectively.
For new employees and those who are not yet vested, pension benefits will be calculated based on a high-5 instead of a high-3, retirement age will be increased by five years for non-emergency workers and seven-and-a-half years for emergency workers, and the number of years of work required to qualify for retiree health benefits will increase.
SB 3 is another in a series of attacks from the New Hampshire legislature on workers. Call Gov. Lynch today and ask him to veto SB 3 and defend New Hampshire’s working families.
Gov. Lynch has until tomorrow—Wednesday, June 15—at 5 p.m. either to veto SB 3 or to sign it into law.
Please call the governor today at (603) 271-2121. The governor’s office is open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., but messages can be left after hours.
Make your voice heard and demand that Gov. Lynch stand with the working families of New Hampshire.
