==Issues==
 
===Pension legislation===
 
A 2011 proposal to cut benefits and require longer hours for new state employees earned Bradley significant blowback from public employee unions. Bradley's bill called for public employees to contribute an extra 2 percent of their wages to the state's retirement system, a cut to retirement benefits for new hires, and mandated extra hours for all employees. Though the plan, which passed the GOP-controlled legislature, was subsequently vetoed by [[Democratic]] [[Governor of New Hampshire|John Lynch]], [[Republican]] lawmakers shoehorned it into law by attaching it to the state budget bill. 
 
 
During a speech pitching his plan, Bradley said that his plan was "tough medicine" that would save the state, which faced a $4.7 billion budget deficit, about $700 million over the coming decades.<ref>[http://www.seacoastonline.com/articles/20110518-NEWS-105180378 ''Seacoastonline.com'', "Workers grill Sen.

New Hampshire Committee Assignments, 2013

Energy and Natural Resources
Rules, Enrolled Bills and Internal Affairs

Issues

Pension legislation

A 2011 proposal to cut benefits and require longer hours for new state employees earned Bradley significant blowback from public employee unions. Bradley's bill called for public employees to contribute an extra 2 percent of their wages to the state's retirement system, a cut to retirement benefits for new hires, and mandated extra hours for all employees. Though the plan, which passed the GOP-controlled legislature, was subsequently vetoed by Democratic John Lynch, Republican lawmakers shoehorned it into law by attaching it to the state budget bill.

During a speech pitching his plan, Bradley said that his plan was "tough medicine" that would save the state, which faced a $4.7 billion budget deficit, about $700 million over the coming decades.[1][2]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in New Hampshire

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of New Hampshire scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
