In the second year of the session, the New Hampshire General Court will quickly begin work on several hundred bills of interest to municipalities after a quick couple of days focused on overriding vetoes.
Join NHMA's Government Affairs Counsel, Natch Greyes, and Government Finance Advisor, Katherine Heck, to hear about some of the bills that may of major concern and/or to municipalities this year. Some are good, but, as with last year, most are bad.
Despite facing a pandemic that is far from resolved, the New Hampshire General Court begins not only wrestling with hundreds of bills but also on how best to conduct in-person and/or remote hearings. It’s also that time of year, again, when legislators need to hear from local officials about the concerns of municipalities.
