NH Governement and Politics.
« on: April 05, 2004, 06:25:39 pm »

Hi folks,

Got the following from one of the NH reps I met last week and believe it a great resource if you want to start learning about what is going on in NH!
_________________________________________________________

Just click on the following links.  Save each in your "Favorites"
folder.  I created a folder just for the NH General Court, labeled as
such.  Save each Link and save as titled in the following numbers.

1....158 Session of the General Court:
http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/ie/

On this web page you will have access to all the up and coming Sessions,
Bills that will be voted on in the House and Senate.  Also, access to links
that will give you the bills that are currently in committee and the dates
for up and coming committee meetings.

Note:  if you click on House, in the above link, you will come up with the
next link.

2...House of Representatives
http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/house/default.html

There are a lot of links on this page....mostly the link that most Reps use
will be the "Calendar's and Journals" link.


3...NH Rep. Calendar
http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/hcaljourns/

This is a very informative link.  It has all the committee meeting
assignments, time and room location.  Also, it has the agenda for the next
session, time, and bills that will be voted on in the House.

Click on  (No. 25, April 2, 2004)  to view the contents. and then Click on
(No. 19, March 12, 2004), this has the Session listed with the bills to be
voted on.  It is broken down into 2-parts.  Consent Calendar, and Regular
Calendar.  The Consent Calendar has the bills that will be voted on in
block.  Unless, a Representative wishes to remove and debate on the House
floor.  On the Regular Calendar, each bill will be voted on separately, and
some may be by electronic vote....I.e. "Roll Call".

It would be a good idea to print out the issue that has the next Session
scheduled.  And if you can make it to the State House that day....come up
into the gallery, and keep track of the proceedings for that day.

4....Senate Home Page:
http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/senate/

Just follow the various links on that page to view the contents of each link

5...If you wish to view a bill, and know the number...use the following link:
http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/ie/billstatus/quickbill.html

There are a few links that are duplicated.....it is always better to browse
and view each link...and when you see one you wish to save then save in
Favorites folder.

Voting records is a good one to browse....has all the bills that were voted
on in this session and past sessions(back to 1999) by electronic
vote....I.e. Roll Call vote.

More from our friend in the making, in the NH legistature: :)
______________________________________________________


This web page introduces the Legislative process.  It also has links to the
House and Senate Committee's. And, other links to the House and Senate
Calendar and Journals, and how NH citizens can participate in the bill process.

Also, another web site that may come in handy is the "NEW HAMPSHIRE REVISED
STATUTES ANNOTATED"...or commonly known as RSA's.  The RSA's are located at
the following web site:  These are the laws enacted and passed by the
House/Senate

http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/rsa/html/indexes/default.asp

Pistol and revolver laws are on the following web site:  As often as we
hear that RSA 159:6....refers to the laws enacted by the House/Senate on
Pistol License.

http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/rsa/html/XII/159/159-6.htm

Note:  sometimes there may be a delay in getting the update onto the web,
with all the changes that happen in each committee.  All the laws
(RSA's-current) are in the State Library for all citizens to
read.....located across from the Legislative Office building.
