Public Citizen asked me to write a guest blog for them on the subject of the NH Senate rule change allowing the Senate to avoid dealing with any resolutions they don't wish to hear. See me there at: Citizen Vox.
New Hampshire has always enjoyed a reputation for being a state filled with thrifty Yankees having libertarian leanings. The 400-member House of Representatives is the third-largest governing body in the English-speaking world. All New Hampshire legislators serve tw0-year terms, for which they receive an annual gratuity of $100. They’re citizens. They’re volunteers. They are not professional politicians.
