Statement from Governor Hassan on U.S. Senate Vote on the Protect Women's Health from Corporate Interference Act

CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate failed to move the Protect Women's Health from Corporate Interference Act forward:

"Ensuring that women and their families can make their own health care and family planning decisions is critical to their economic well-being and the economy of our entire state and nation. I'm disappointed that the U.S. Senate did not move forward with this important legislation; I will continue to work on state-level solutions in order to ensure that women have comprehensive health insurance coverage, protect women's access to affordable critical health services and protect their religious freedom."
