This year, the House has scheduled the bill submission window for the 2012 legislative session to be May 15th to June 8th. This is much earlier than normal. Anyone considering submitting a bill for next year’s session will need to work fast getting your information together and finding a sponsor. Keep in mind, only State Representatives or Senators can submit bills. For some help pointing you in the right direction, email Joel at email@example.com.

The NHLA will be giving a presentation on Thursday, June 23 on how to advance liberty in New Hampshire by working within the state legislative system.
The Board is piloting a new program to help activists be more informed with what’s happening at the State House. The NHLA Activist Alert system is an opt-in email messenger designed to alert members about important legislation that needs attention. Members would be asked to call your Representatives, or attend the public hearing to give testimony, or write letters to the editor, or whatever is required to help ensure that certain bills are passed or killed. This system is a great way to stay informed, get more involved and helps coordinate members to be a more powerful positive influence in the area of public policy for the future of N.H.
If you are interested in receiving activist alerts, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request. (Important notice: When making public statements, we ask that you do so only as a concerned private citizen and never on the behalf of the NHLA.)
Here’s a great way you can 1) save money, 2) help the small businesses in N.H., and 3) raise funds for the NHLA all at the same time. The Board is proud to announce the Granite State Coupon Book/NHLA affiliation.
The Granite State Coupon Book is a publication promoted by one of our friends Linda L. that is filled with hundreds of great savings for you and your family. The book was designed with the sole purpose of helping out the local businessman and the N.H. economy and not the multi-national giant conglomerates such as Wal-mart, McDonalds, etc.
We encourage you to check out their website at http://www.granitestatecouponbook.com/ and purchase one of their books. The books have been marked down from $29.95 to $19.95. When ordering online (through their website) be sure to note in the comment box “New Hampshire Liberty Alliance,” to ensure that the NHLA receives credit for your purchase.
