I have officially registered for re-election in District 30. Due to redistricting District 30 consists of ANTRIM, BENNINGTON, HILLSBOROUGH and WINDSOR and will have 3 representatives in the NH House. I would be honored to receive your vote and continue to serve you!
Numerous bills were addressed by the NH State Legislature on 17 March and in my BLOG are the Press Releases for some of the 200 Bills.
Press Releases regarding passage of Bills listed in my BLOG.
Manchester, NH- House Environment and Agriculture Committee leadership, Rep. Howard Pearl (R-Loudon) and Rep. Judy Aron (R-Acworth), released the following joint statement after the House passed HB1049, establishing a committee to study landfill siting criteria and methods for reducing pressure on landfill capacity, on the consent calendar.
“The Environment and Agriculture committee has seen a plethora of bills dealing with landfill issues in our state. We believe it is in our best interest to establish this committee to see if any updates need to be made to landfill siting criteria, something that has not been studied in our state in quite some time.”
“This bill creates a study committee to study landfill siting criteria with a focus on local impact, policies on landfill capacity pressure, surety bonding on new landfill projects, setbacks from bodies of water and offsite water flow potential, and extended producer responsibilities relating to meeting solid waste reduction goals for reducing pressure on landfill capacity.”
“House Republicans understand the environmental impact that landfills have on our state and we look forward to finding ways to protect our environment.”
Manchester, NH- Rep. Terry Roy (R-Deerfield) released the following statement in response to HB1575, relative to waiver of tuition in the university system, passed the Education Committee on a unanimous vote of 16-0, and passed the House today on the consent calendar.
“One of my proudest moments as a state representative was the passage of legislation in 2020 to waive tuition at state colleges and universities for children of veterans who are totally and permanently disabled. Today I am equally as proud that this legislation, to extend that benefit to children of disabled veterans who passed away and were residents of the state at the time of their death, has made it through the first step and passed the House.”
“Prior to 2020, New Hampshire law only recognized children of veterans who died while serving, but this left many veterans in the horrible position of later having no way to afford higher education for their children. This bill provides a small piece of mind for our veterans who already sacrifice so much for our state and our country. I am looking forward to guiding HB1575 through the legislative process and bringing it closer to becoming law.”
Manchester, NH - Representatives Stephen Pearson (R-Derry) and Pat Abrami (R-Stratham) released the following statement after the House passed HB1030, relative to licensure by alternate experience for licensed nursing assistants and HB1659, relative to criminal history background checks for certain health care workers:
“New Hampshire, like most of the country, is experiencing a serious shortage of qualified healthcare staff that has led to significant strains on facilities around the state. Despite commendable actions to address this crisis, further action is needed in order to continue making progress,”
“Given the severity of the situation, it is critical that we ensure bureaucratic red tape does not prevent qualified healthcare professionals from joining the workforce in a timely fashion. This legislation takes a positive step in addressing the problem by expediting the wait times for an employee criminal history background check and allowing additional military service members to apply for licensure. We look forward to continuing our work with Nursing Homes, Hospitals, and other stakeholders to remove any unnecessary barriers to those wanting to join our healthcare system.”
House Passes Bills to Increase Accountability to Granite Staters
Manchester, NH- House Speaker Sherman Packard (R-Londonderry) and House Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R-Auburn) released the following joint statement after the House passed a number of bills to increase accountability to Granite Staters.
“In what is already ranked the freest state in the nation, the Republican led legislature passed sweeping reforms to the state of New Hampshire last session, and this year we are hard at work to add on to those accomplishments in the form of transparency and finding ways to make the daily lives of Granite Staters easier,” said Rep. Osborne.
“As elected officials, we are accountable to our constituents who trust us to pass common-sense legislation,’ Rep. Osborne continued. ‘Today, we passed a litany of bills that eliminated burdensome regulations that would have interfered with Granite Stater's day-to-day lives. House Republicans are leading the way to make New Hampshire an even better place to live, work, and raise a family.’"
Speaker Sherman Packard added: “I am proud of the legislative work being done this session. We all want a better future, and under House Leadership, our commitment to bettering the lives of every NH family is the cornerstone of our efforts for real change.”
