HB 1573 is a bill that New Hampshire Democrats should love…because it is a jobs bill.  According to the details at the end of the bill, fiscal impact notes and so on, towns and cities would no longer have to pay any money to the unelected and unnecessary regional commissions that litter the NH landscape.  […]

Thumbnail image for HB 1573-FN ‘Making Planning Boards More Responsive To The People’…

Mark your calendar.  On January 16th at 1PM (LOB 301) there will be a hearing on HB 1573-FN – a bill that would require all municipal planning boards to be elected—and therefore directly responsible to voters and taxpayers.  That’s an idea I could get behind–making all planning boards responsive to the voice of the people.

Guest Post by NH State Rep. Jane Cormier – Honor is the Only Way Out of This Mess!

by Skip February 3, 2013
