  • A NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION FOR THE NH LEGISLATURE: KILL THE DIRTY DOZEN BILLS OF 2012 | Conservation New Hampshire
    master plan for Franconia Notch State Park fully engage the public in the development process and ensure that the master plan addresses key issues facing the Park s future including its name the potential for leasing and specific capital improvements needed to sustain the Park and its use by the public As introduced this bill puts the cart before the horse HB 1222 To Weaken Protection of NH s Crown Jewels Our Lakes This bill would reduce the permitting fees collected by the Department of Environmental Services under the Shoreland Water Quality Protection Act This shortsighted bill would likely lead to further layoffs at the Department which could undermine water quality protection in lakes across the state HB 514 To Pre empt Public Access to Un posted Private Lands This bill would prohibit entry by anyone to private land for virtually any purpose without the written consent of the landowner Among the many unintended consequences of this bill would be to undercut the ability of Fish and Game the Department of Environmental Services Department of Resources and Economic Development not to mention most hunters and fisherman from enjoying accessing and monitoring the health of the state s wildlife and natural resources Our economy would no doubt suffer as a result HB 1428 To Gut the State s Renewable Energy Law This bill would make major negative changes to the state s popular and successful Renewable Energy Law Among other things the bill would give special treatment to nuclear energy and would fundamentally change the rules of the game that have led more sustainable energy businesses to start up and create jobs right here in New Hampshire HB 1490 To Repeal RGGI Leaving NH with All Pain and No Gain This bill would repeal the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative RGGI This is a repeat attempt by the House to jam through a failed anti RGGI effort from last year that was vetoed by the Governor and sustained by the Senate There is widespread support in New Hampshire s business community to stay in the program If NH gets out of RGGI the state will still have to pay for the program but won t get any of its funding or benefits back HB 1415 To Look the Other Way on Failed Septic Systems Today if your septic system fails your replacement system has to be checked by DES to verify that it will work better than the original one The existing requirement which DES just adopted in 2011 ensures that replacements for failed systems are designed by certified professionals and are installed properly This bill would eliminate DES s oversight putting New Hampshire s lakes rivers and estuaries at risk HB 1234 HB 1435 and HB 1436 To Micro manage State Agencies These three bills would establish a DES grievance committee in the Legislature to micro manage the Department of Environmental Services and the Department of Resources Economic Development They beg key practical economic and constitutional questions Does the Legislature want
