  • Update week 2 2010 session
    Updated On: Jun 09, 2017

    Legislative Update Week of January 10th
    2nd Week of the 2010 Legislative Session


    VICTORY ON THE HOUSE FLOOR AS HB401 IS DEFEATED!

    Wednesday was an exciting day for fire fighters and the other beneficiaries of the New Hampshire Retirement System.   The New Hampshire House defeated HB401, 200 to 147, which would have reduced the number of beneficiary members on the NHRS Board of Trustees. Many thanks to the PFFNH members who worked the House Floor for two session days in order to secure this victory.  Please click here to view how your local State Representative voted. http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/nhgcrollcalls/rollcallsbyvotedetail.aspx
    If they voted ITL please take the time to thank them, we’re going to need their vote again this session!

    Session has just started and the first few weeks will be filled with hearings and work sessions.  This week there were a few hearings of note, including HB 1179: relative to municipal access to the enhanced 911 database.

    The room was packed for HB 1191: relative to fire sprinkler systems,
    and HB 1486: prohibiting the use of fire sprinkler systems in certain dwellings.
    These two bills will continue to get a lot of attention as the session continues and we will monitor them closely.
