Legislative Session

Legislative Sessions

NH LAKES works with New Hampshire legislators, state agency staff, and partners, to submit and support bills that will help restore and preserve our lakes.! While NH LAKES takes strong positions of support or opposition on some bills, we also track a large number of bills as they move through the legislative process, so we can respond if they become important to our cause. Learn more about some of the bills we support and track.

For more information, email or call Michelle Davis Farnham, NH LAKES Advocacy Program Coordinator, at mdavis@nhlakes.org or (603) 226-0299.


We give lakes a voice at the State House and help advance lake-friendly policy.


During the New Hampshire legislative session, we rely on individuals close to and passionate about lakes to reach out to elected representatives by making calls and writing letters. We also call upon individuals to attend hearings, sign in for or against bills, and give testimony.

While we work hard to advocate for New Hampshire waterbodies, it is only with your support that we can advance legislation in the State House.
