N.H. House Hearing on HB1337 to Apply RTK to Courts on January 11 at 10:45

House Bill 1337 to apply the Right-to-Know Law to the courts has been introduced in the N.H. House and assigned to the House Judiciary Committee. This bill is sponsored by Rep. Michael Brewster (R). RTKNH generally supports applying the Right-to-Know Law to the courts, but recommends amending this bill.

HB1337 is scheduled for a hearing by the House Judiciary Committee on Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 10:45 a.m. in room 208 of the Legislative Office Building in Concord, N.H. The public is encouraged to attend and testify in favor of this bill.

This bill adds 1 sentence to RSA 91-A:1-a, VI:

(f) All New Hampshire courts.

RTKNH recommends that the courts should be added to RSA 91-A:1-a, V, instead, so they are treated as a public agency instead of a public body.

The full text of the bill is available here.
