2021 Legislative Half-time Report

Broadcast Date: 
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.    There is no PowerPoint presentation for this weekly call/webinar.
