On Wednesday, June 14 at
1:30, the Epsom Library will be showing the movie “Gold.” The
film stars Matthew McConaughey as Kenny Wells, a prospector
desperate for a lucky break. He teams up with a similarly
eager geologist and sets off on a journey to find gold in the
uncharted jungle of Indonesia. Loosely based on a true story, the
film is rated R.

constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,
it’s the budget again. Monday, I attended a briefing on the Senate
Finance committee budget. It’s very similar to the House budget, but
includes a further cut in business taxes. With later revenue
numbers, the Senate almost always has more flexibility than the
House. Since it passed the Senate late yesterday, it will go to
committee of conference as soon as we get it.
The session started
with agreeing with the Senate on a number of bills, and setting up
committees of conference on others. HB525, my committee’s bill on
acupuncture for substance abuse, was set up for a committee of
conference since the rulemaking provisions the Senate added were
considered by the supporters to completely gut the bill.
debated SB225, an update to the state’s trust laws; the opposition
wanted to require regulations for family trusts. It passed, 217-137.
SB66, creating the crime of fetal homicide, was also debated at
length. The minority amendment was the same “enhanced penalties”
offered the last few times this bill was submitted, and failed
162-192. An amendment to protect all pregnancies, from conception
instead of 20 weeks plus, also failed, 49-306. I voted against
because it would not be acceptable to the Senate, and 20 weeks is a
reasonable position. After lengthy debate, the bill passed, 186-170.
