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 email@example.com 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.
See what happened with bill NH LAKES tracked in previous New Hampshire Legislative Sessions:
House Bill 325: requires boaters to use AIS prevention technologies at public boat access facilities, if they are available. This important addition to existing clean and drain requirements will further help to prevent the spread of AIS in New Hampshire by encouraging boat access facility owners to invest in AIS prevention technologies.
House Bill 625: requires out-of-state boaters to purchase a $20 decal annually for AIS prevention and management. This additional revenue will help reduce the increasing AIS prevention and management cost burden that local groups and municipalities have to bear.
