To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield:

Possibly the most important bill I sponsored this year is HB137, which is on the Governor’s desk. The result of several years of work, HB137 separates the state fire code from the building code and provides oversight on adoption of the fire code. This issue is important to anyone who is building, renovating, or using a public building (anything but a single family home!) in the state. Governor Lynch has signed my HB1633, which allows school districts to show the board vote tally on warrant articles, and SB342, adapting the state building code to specifically address the details of log structures.


Another important bill of mine on the Governor’s desk is HB1508, on the Board of Mental Health Practice. I started it to address some minor issues: allowing late license renewal, details of the patients’ bill of rights, and protection for therapists accused of misconduct during a court case. That was better addressed in HB1173, which we folded into HB1508. Finally, HB1508 addresses the privacy rights of mental health patients whose therapists were being investigated; the Board has had severe problems with this in the past, leading the legislature to ban implementation of their rules with last year’s HJR3.


Also waiting for the Governor are HB1217, on the reciprocity of advance directives, and SB311, on weights and measures. HB1217 simply directs New Hampshire hospitals, etc, to accept out of state living wills, even if they aren’t in the correct local style. SB311, as I previously mentioned, allows the department to collect weights and measures fees, establishes an advisory council, and separates the requirements for an invoice from those for a delivery ticket from a fuel dealer.


Interested readers can email me for my newsletter, with more details than I can fit in a letter.


Representative Carol McGuire







I wanted to take a moment to be thankful for all the logging that is going on between Carriage Hill and Oak Ridge.


In previous years, we have not had this amount of wildlife in our back yards. The local cats would keep the squirrel population down. And other wildlife kept mostly to the woods.


Now, due to the logging which has pushed the wildlife into our back yards, we have wildlife everywhere. Personally, I now have about 8-10 red squirrel families living in my back yard. Neighbors now have skunk, fox and other wildlife living in their yards.


So again, I wanted to share my appreciation for the clear cutting, as the wildlife issue we did not previously have, we now "enjoy".
