Bills 2018

The Right-to-Know Law changes as new bills pass into law. Almost every year there are proposed bills to amend the Right-to-Know Law. This year, Right to Know NH has proposed 7 bills to strengthen the ability of citizens of New Hampshire to access their government. There are 6 bills already submitted to Legislative Services and assigned numbers. We have a Senate sponsor for a seventh bill, not yet assigned an LSR number.
