Last week was full of movement and community, and we are entering Monday with our energy high. What better way to celebrate Earth Day than calling on elected leaders to take action now for a livable planet for us all?
As we enter mid-April, it’s starting to really feel like Spring. The warmer weather is bringing us fresh energy, and we have a lot of exciting events on the horizon!
Thanks to everyone who has been testifying and reaching out to legislators, we saw a number of positive outcomes last week in the NH Senate.
Last week, a RAD-supported healthcare bill PASSED in the House! In the coming week, THREE priority healthcare bills will be heard, in the House Health and Senate Health Committees.
This week, two RAD-supported healthcare access bills made huge advancements in the Senate and House! See Highlights from Last Week below for more information. In the coming week, two priority healthcare bills will be heard, one in the Senate Health Committee and one in a House floor vote. See Top Actions this Week to learn how you can voice your support!
This last week was a tough one, with the House Legislature passing bad bills including HB 1266, an anti-sanctuary bill, HB 1476, undoing bail reform, and HB 1393, relating to school district budget caps. The New Hampshire Legislature also decided to pass a resolution in support of Israel, even though they should not be taking on international issues. This resolution will now go to the Senate.
This week brought positive and negative developments, as bills came up for floor votes in the Senate on Thursday.
We hope you are not losing the passion to keep doing your part – your voice matters! We keep hearing from elected officials that the most effective way to influence the legislative process is to talk to your legislator.
With the onslaught of negative bills, we are glad to share that this week there are some really good bills you can support to advance immigrant rights, healthcare access, fair wages, and racial justice.
This past week was quite a week, with Legislative committees hearing testimony on priority bills around divisive concepts, school vouchers, housing justice, and abortion bans. Thank you to everyone who came out to make their voices heard. We are still waiting on the committees to issue vote recommendations.
This week, two more bills related to divisive concepts will be heard; we are asking people to register their opposition online or go in person to testify.
