Bill reviews are done within our bill review system at bills.nhliberty.org. This site shares the same username and password as our forums so if you’ve setup your forum account already you can access the site immediately, otherwise, use the forgot password feature to login.
All NHLA members get read access to the bill review system. If you’d like to participate in the bill review process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The NHLA reads, reviews, and rates almost 1,000 bills each year. Nearly every bill submitted to the Legislature is rated by a NHLA member on its liberty impact:
- Is it constitutional?
- Does it expand the size, cost, and power of government?
- What will be the unintended consequences?
With this information, we publish a weekly update called the Gold Standard. Distributed to members of the House of Representatives prior to floor votes, the document is an invaluable aid in educating them whether a given bill is pro- or anti-liberty.
Our purpose in reviewing bills is to give feedback to the legislature and to the voters regarding the impact of legislation on the state’s citizens and businesses.
We want to help educate legislators about what makes a bill pro- or anti-liberty and we want voters to know how their legislators are voting.
This is a good way to be an effective citizen lobbyist and policy analyst without ever leaving your house! Please consider volunteering.
