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. These 7 bills have been submitted to Legislative Services and assigned LSR numbers. RTKNH worked with the RTK Study Commission which proposed an eighth bill on an ombudsman and commission.  And finally, a ninth bill from RTKNH was retained in the House Judiciary Committee from last year.
