The NH HB1360 ban, also known as the “none of us are competent enough do things in our vehicle bill,”is heading to Governor Nanny Hassan’s desk.   It will very likely become law, after which, based on the insanity of the language in this bill, no driver under 18 will be permitted to turn a […]

Notes from today’s hearing on Speech-infringing Senate Bill 120 (SB 120), as reported here, suggest that there are enough concerns about who will be affected beyond what sponsors claimed was the original intent to merit more time and consideration.

I have always considered the word “thanks,” unless presented with sarcasm as if to say “well, thanks a lot,” to have a positive connotation, until now. Kevin Landrigan CONCORD – Thanks to deaths and resignations, the 400-member House of Representatives is down to 388 strong. Then there is the awkward,  “down to 388 Strong.” I […]

No surprised.  Cindy Rosenwald’s amendment to add Medicaid Expansion without hearings or debate passed the NH House 186-155.
