HB 1002 is a REALLY bad bill. I don’t understand how it made it out of committee with an OTP–colluders!
Think you don’t know what your government is up to? Imagine if they can drag their feet for 9 hours and then start charging you a service fee to provide Constitutionally required information? As I often say, incentives matter, and these incentives are aligned with a lack of transparency, places an unnecessary burden on citizens, and is not needed.
Here is a document prepared by RTKNH’s president Katherine Kokko. She and I will be distributing them at the statehouse this morning before the session starts.
Heading to the NH state house this morning to stave off one of the worst bills I've seen in a while (HB 1002).— Carla Gericke, Live Free And Thrive! (@CarlaGericke) February 1, 2024
Activists & independent media like me use RTK requests to figure out what's happening & keep government accountable.
Now Municipalities want to charge a service fee… https://t.co/b55i97OvMu pic.twitter.com/W1DpdljyeK
