Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement after New Hampshire Legislative Democrats filed a frivolous suit against Governor Sununu over the disbursement of Federal CARES Act funds:

“New Hampshire Legislative Democrats’ dedication to partisanship is now on full display during a mass pandemic,” said NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek. “Their decision to sue will only delay the release of CARES Act funds, and they are in truth suing themselves. Existing statute passed by the legislature gives the Governor oversight over the direction of federal funds during a crisis - this suit will only cause delay and prolong New Hampshire’s response to COVID-19. As the vast majority of Granite Staters support Governor Sununu’s response to the crisis, New Hampshire Democrats want to fight him in court instead of fighting COVID-19 together.”
