Upcoming NH legislation

Housing Activist Jane Aitken needs our help. We the people must also communicate our messages to our local governing bodies and land use boards!

Search on the page for key words like housing, workforce, rent, units, etc. or any other issue of concern. I totally missed the rent control one. I did already send out info on SB 231 (a real doozy. costing $65M!) and HB 44 which seem to be the worst, maybe except for the land use court which is like another HAB!

Here is the link:

These are the bills I've singled out so far.... some are only of concern to CNHT so you can ignore those if you want, others important to town groups like BRA.

I've noted SUPPORT, OPPOSE or UNSURE and below those, some that I never got to review which likely now have bill numbers. If they are assigned, it will be noted on that page with a link to the bill's text.
