The New Hampshire Citizens' Veto Amendment
did not appear on the November 2, 2010 ballot
in the state of New Hampshire
as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment
. The measure would have allowed citizens to reject laws passed by the New Hampshire Legislature
. According to the proposal of the measure, citizens could veto any laws by implementing a limited citizens' referendum process. The measure would have only allowed for residents to reject proposed state law, not institute it. Representative Laurie Boyce
is one of the many sponsors of the measure.
The measure would have amended the second part of the New Hampshire Constitution by adding a new Article 2a.
Path to the ballot
Part II, Article 100 says that a legislatively-referred amendment can go on the ballot if approved by a 60% vote of each house of the New Hampshire General Court.
