  • Legislative Update Week of June 6, 2010
    Updated On: Jun 09, 2017

    Legislative Update Week of June 6

    This will be the LAST legislative update for sometime. The House and Senate agreed to a budget on Wednesday. Which you can read here: 

    There is no gambling in this years budget. A gambling proposal passed the Senate but died in the House once again.

    Below is summary of the bills we were able to pass and the bills we were able to kill this session. I want to thank all of you and all of your members for a tremendously successful session. Together, we were able to battle back against major threats to our pensions and pass some very important measures. Every call or email to a legislator from one of our members played a key roll in our success and I want to thank everyone for working together and weighing in when it mattered most.

    Our next challenge is to get ready for next session by supporting all of our PFFNH members who are running for state rep. I would really like to visit your local to talk about how you can help make our candidates successful.

    Please contact me if you have an upcoming meeting I can attend.

    Thank you all again for a great session.
