How the Legislative process works:

How a bill becomes law   House Rules    Senate Rules  NH State Legislature Portal

The Right-to-Know law changes as new bills are passed into law. Almost every year there are proposed bills to amend the Right-to-Know Law.

The first step for a bill in New Hampshire is a request (LSR) to Legislative Services to wordsmith the bill. You can see the bills affecting Right to Know through the Legislative Service search on the web. Click here, type “right-to-know” in the field labeled “Search by a word within the LSR’s title” then click the Submit button.

After the bills are wordsmithed by Legislative Services, they can be tracked as bills. Click here, enter the current year and type “right-to-know” in the field labeled “title” then click the Submit button. The results of this search gives you links to track the status of each bill as they work through the legislature.
