Bills of Interest to the Bar Tracked


Hundreds of bills of potential interest to the legal community are being reviewed and their status followed by the NHBA Legislation Committee. In a few cases, the committee recommends an advocacy position be taken by the Bar Association. These recommendations are then considered by the NHBA Board of Governors which reviews and decides on whether to take a position on a bill, using criteria from the NH Supreme Court’s Chapman and the United States Supreme Court’s Keller decisions which reaffirm the legitimacy of lobbying in certain circumstances by unified bars.


Bar members interested in seeing whether there is pending legislation relevant to their practice area are encouraged to read the Legislation Committee bill-tracker chart. It is found in the For Members area/ Law Practice Tips & Resources (red banner area) of Click on the “Legislation Info” link. That page also has information on the Bar’s criteria for advocacy positions.


For text on a specific bill, click on the bill number on the chart. The Legislative Info chart is regularly updated following meetings of the Legislation Committee and the Board of Governors, which meets specially during the legislative session to review new bills.
