NHMA Weekly Membership Call/2021 Legislative Half-time Report

Friday, April 16, 2021 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm


NHMA's legal services and government affairs attorneys host a weekly call (every 1:00 pm on Friday) for municipal officials and employees on municipal issues and concerns.  Originally formed to address matters arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, this weekly membership call addresses other municipal concerns and issues which has been beneficial to both staff and members. All municipal officials from member municipalities are encouraged to participate. The purpose of the call is to learn about continuing and new issues municipalities are facing, as well as to try to answer your questions.  

We hope you will join us on Fridays for this weekly call.  

We encourage members to use the green highlighted link below to join us via computer instead of the phone.  Thanks.

AGENDA:  2021 Legislative Half-time Report

(1:00 pm, Friday, April 16, 2021)

It's legislative half-time and time for teams to swap ends of the field of play.
Join Executive Director Margaret M.L. Byrnes, Government Affairs Counsel Cordell Johnston, Municipal Services Counsel Natch Greyes, and Government Finance Advisor Becky Benvenuti for a look at the status of legislation affecting municipalities after "Crossover." Crossover is the date by which a bill must pass either the House or the Senate in order to "cross-over" to the other chamber for consideration.
NHMA's advocacy team will discuss the current status of bills at the State House and offer a postmortem on a few that have been killed. The discussion will include, among other items, the state budget, the retirement system, municipal liability and immunity, town meeting and SB 2 legislation,  planning and zoning, municipal ordinance authority, the Right-to-Know Law, energy issues, and election law matters.
Weekly Membership Calls are open to all municipal officials and employees. 

We hope you will join us on Friday, April 16th, for this legislative update.
