House Passed SB44

SB44 was passed by the full House.  This bill extends a non-public exemption to include state correctional facilitates. It was voted as ought to pass by a voice vote on the consent calendar. The House vote adopted the OTP report by the House Judiciary Committee. The committee voted 18-0. The report was presented by Rep. Mark McLean:

This bill amends RSA 91-A:3, II(g) to take the right currently held by county corrections departments to hold nonpublic sessions when considering security related issues, and extends it to the state level. The law offers no additional provisions and only serves to make procedures at the state and county level more uniform.

SB44 now goes to the governor for her signature.
