2011 New Hampshire Liberty Related Bills Report

This report includes a partial selection of the list of pro-liberty bills, resolutions or constitutional amendments that at least passed either the New Hampshire House of Representatives or the NH Senate as of July 18th 2011. I attempted to not include duplicate bills. The bills included on this list are bills that I believe the majority of people find pro-liberty; though, I personally may not think all of the bills listed are pro-liberty.

Likely, there are mistakes in this report. I’ll update the report after the final veto session of the year and may correct the mistakes. If you see a mistake, please point it out to me.

At least 53 pro-liberty bills and 1 pro-liberty resolution passed in NH in 2011. 7 pro-liberty bills were vetoed by Governor Lynch but may pass later this year during a veto override session.

The list is arranged as follows:
House bills that became law
Senate bills that became law
Bills that were vetoed but may be included in the veto override session
Bills that did not become law but passed either the House or Senate

A description of each piece of information describing a bill is as follows:
Title of the bill, resolution or amendment
Status of the bill
Analysis or amended analysis of the bill
Link to a discussion of the bill, this section does not exist for all of the bills
Link to the General Court website for more information on the bill
