Two bills in the NH House that YOU can help pass or fail will be voted on next week

March 16, 2013

There are two bills in the New Hampshire House that YOU can help pass or fail. They will be voted on by the full New Hampshire House on either Wednesday, March 20th or Thursday, March 21st.

 State-House-Summer1 Most bills either have an Ought to Pass or Inexpedient to Legislate recommendation by a committee. When a bill goes to the full New Hampshire House for a vote, the House agrees with the committee recommendation the vast majority of the time. However, this week, at least 2 bills of interest to freedom lovers don’t have a committee recommendation because the committee couldn’t decide on a recommendation for the bills. That means, some of the representatives aren’t going to have any strong ideas on how to vote on the bills. Some representatives will be especially interested in YOUR opinions on these bills.

1 pro-liberty resolution and 1 anti-liberty bill that the full NH House is scheduled to vote on next week (on either the 20th or the 21st) don’t have a committee recommendation because the committee tied when it voted on the bills.

HRC3 is very similar to HCR19, which passed the NH House in 2011 but was laid on the table in the NH Senate. HRC3 is a RESOLUTION affirming States’ powers based on the Constitution for the United States and the Constitution of New Hampshire. If it passed the NH House again, the news would make waves in the States Rights, Nullification and 10th Amendment communities. If you want to help HRC3 pass, please look up your representative http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/house/members/wml.aspx and email him or her saying you support the resolution and include your contact information in the email. I also recommend sending a similar email (here is the email link) to the full NH House. If you can think of positive, non-controversial reasons to support the resolution, please include them in your email.

HB357 is an anti-liberty, anti-business, perhaps pro-privacy bill. It prohibits an employer from using credit history in employment decisions in NH, thus discouraging businesses from moving to NH. It also discourages regional companies from adding extra employees in NH and would be very hard to enforce. If you want to help prevent HB357 from passing, please look up your representative http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/house/members/wml.aspx and email him or her saying you are opposed to the bill and include your contact information in the email. I also recommend sending a similar email (here is the email link) to the full NH House. If you can think of non-controversial reasons to oppose the bill, please include them in your email.

  1. Northern Pass and Foreign-Owned Wind Farms are quickly taking over the NH Mountain Ridge lines and dividing communities. These are elective energy projects that provide no significant benefit to NH citizens in electrical savings or in permanent jobs. This is are a significant concern in many areas of the state – any area in NH could be next.

    It is our taxes, via Federal and state subsidies, that fund these projects and jeopardize our tourism economy, businesses and livelihoods.

    It is a single NH commission – the Site Evaluation Committee (SEC) that decides.. Operating under an “optional” set of “guidelines” created in 2007 prior to the 2025 RPS manadate this past year, they have no state energy policy to guide them. Currently, our green power carbon credits are sold out-of-state and are not accounted for in the RPS goals. Even more concerning is that the SECs Commissioner Burack stated at a recent House STE meeting, the SEC is at a ‘breaking point’.

    Northern Pass and NH Wind Watch are asking NH residents to call their district representatives and support the HB-2 amendment to be voted on this Wednesday!

    Please ask your members to contact their representative (PDF of reps attached) and tell them to vote ‘ought to pass’ on the amendment for HB-2, as this is a state-wide issue and will severely impact NHs tourism economy, businesses and our livelihoods for private and foreign gain alone.
