To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,

It was a pleasure to meet so many of you at Pittsfield’s Old Home Day! I’ll be at Epsom’s on August 12 if you want to stop by and say hello.


July is legislative vacation month, but my committee on administrative rules (JLCAR) meets around the year. Last meeting, the controversial rule was the transfer of civilly committed patients from New Hampshire Hospital to the Secure Psychiatric Unit, within the state prison. We all agreed that the procedure in the new rules was better and more protective of patient’s rights than the current procedure, and the only issue was whether or not such patients should be transferred at all! Since that is beyond JLCAR’s authority, we approved the rule and referred that issue to the legislature. 


I’ve been appointed to the decennial commission on the state retirement system. The last commission, in 2007, identified major weaknesses in the system and started the Legislative changes that were put in place over the last ten years. I expect the current version to identify a similar scope of changes to help the system deal with its current underfunded status. 


Representative Carol McGuire
