AGENDA 1. Introductions
2. The Debate over Redistricting HB 706 has been operating very much under the radar, but its outcome could have profound implications for years on New Hampshire's political landscape. To paraphrase Joni Mitchell, we're going to be taking a look at the issue "from both sides now."
Our first guests will be from the House Election Law committee. Vice-Chair Wayne Moynihan (D-Dummer) and Kathleen Hoelzel (R-Raymond) will be presenting the "pro" side of the bill, and why businesses should care about it.
They will be followed by former NH Senate Counsel, and author of a recent Union Leader op/ed on this issue, Rick Lehmann, who will focus on why the legislation is a bad idea.
3. Doing a Deep Dive on the Budget We will be providing a detailed review of the House Budget, focusing on BIA budget priorities as well as significant tax changes and new programs that are included in HB 1 and HB 2.
