  • Update week 1 2010 session
    Updated On: Jun 09, 2017

    Legislative Update Week of January 3rd
    1st Week of the 2010 Legislative Session



    The legislature is back in full swing and PFFNH’s government operations have
    hit the ground running this week!

    Most pressing this week and next is HB 401.  This bill would reduce the
    number of beneficiary members of the Retirement System Board Trustees to
    just one group I member and one group II member. The full body will vote on
    the bill this coming Wednesday and we are well on our way to defeating this
    measure.  Many thanks go to our PFFNH members who serve as State
    Representatives who are working hard and executing a floor strategy to
    ensure our success. We have an excellent chance of killing this bill in the
    House.  If you have a relationship with your State Rep and can reach out to
    them this week please ask them to “Vote against the committee report of OTP
    and vote to ITL HB 401.”  You can find their phones and email here

    PFFNH President Dave Lang testified on Thursday to the House Criminal
    Justice and Public Safety Committee on two bills regarding Fire Standards
    and Training; HB 1131: relative to requirements for fire fighter
    certification
    http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/legislation/2010/HB1131.html
    and HB 1135: requiring the fire standards and training commission to perform
    self-reviews of its membership

    http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/legislation/2010/HB1135.html  An amendment
    was brought by the sponsor, Rep. Shurtleff on HB1135 that would outline
    specifically who would serve on the board rather then let the board decide.
    Both bills will be sent to subcommittee for a more thorough look at the
    issues and more input from witnesses. As these bills progresses we will keep
    you updated.
