Under Gov. Hassan, New Hampshire officially expanded Medicaid to cover approximately 50,000 more people.
Gov. Hassan signed the New Hampshire Paycheck Fairness Act into law. The bill addressed the gender pay gap, and “eliminates loopholes, increases wage transparency and ensures workers have the resources to earn a fair and equal paycheck without fear of retaliation.” If elected to the Senate, Gov. Hassan has pledged to be a proponent of the Paycheck Fairness Act.
Hassan has fought for women to access birth control for decades: As a state senator, she supported a bill that allowed New Hampshire women to buy emergency contraception like Plan B without a prescription.
