Letter

 

To my constituents in Allenstown, Epsom, and Pittsfield,

This week, I met with students from Pittsfield on their state house visit. I couldn’t spend as much time with them as I would have liked, because my committee was meeting to finish its work for the year. SB168, clarifying that the DES commissioner, along with fish & game, has the authority to recommend leases for shellfish restoration in Great Bay, was debated on an amendment that deleted some water quality criteria. Many conservation groups felt that the agreement had been rushed, and there was no urgency to making this change; much of the committee agreed. That amendment failed, 3-16, but the bill was recommended to pass, 19-0.

 

SB16, authorizing use of rear view mirrors instead of an observer for water skiers on a slalom course, was also debated on the risks involved. Since this bill only allowed it in very restrictive circumstances, and mirrors are allowed in other states (including Florida) most of the committee believed it was the skiers’ choice. We recommended it to pass, 14-5.

 

SB38, establishing a commission to develop a long term, integrated plan for land conservation, was amended to cut the commission from 22 to 11 members and unanimously recommended to pass, as was SB80, creating a study committee on rail trails, and SB173, a study committee to look into a club plan for OHRVs, similar to the snowmobile club system.

 

SB172, allowing 65” wide OHRVs (up from 62) on public trails in Coos and Grafton counties, was debated and recommended to pass, 17-2, since the 65” model is becoming standard and it’s allowed in Jericho Mountain and some private trails – but not other public trails.

 

Interested readers can email me for my newsletter, with more details than fit here.
