This is the twelfth annual Liberty Rating issued by the New Hampshire Liberty Alliance, based on 50 roll call votes in the House and 22 in the Senate. This year the House earned a collective grade of C and the Senate a C+. We’d like to congratulate our Legislator of the Year, Dan Itse. Rep. Itse, currently serving his eighth term, recieved a perfect score, and a grade of A+. Representative Itse has been on the five year honor roll every year since it was established in 2010, and served as the NHLA's political director from 2007-2008.
Update 7/18/2015: The Liberty Dinner is sold out! Tickets to the cocktail reception *only* can still be purchased at the door.
