We’ve been taking a look at some of the proposed legislation for 2012. Here are some of the 175 bills that were withdrawn:
2026 establishing a permanent state defense force.
Poor Itse. That he couldn’t get this bill through THIS legislature must be breaking his heart.
2045 prohibiting state courts from using a foreign law or legal code in any ruling.
Because this happens all the time in NH? I wasn’t aware.
2110 establishing a committee to study the economic benefits of processing, storing, and recycling nuclear waste in New Hampshire.
Excellent! An opportunity for a bunch of legislators from Rockingham County to send nuke waste to the north country. Then we’d have to move, like the flatlanders always suggest.
2124 relative to the process for choosing United States Senators.
It’s safe to assume that the GOP would like to choose the next US Senator themselves, and eliminate the bother of an election.
2202 urging Congress to preserve Medicare in its current form.
2203 urging Congress to preserve social security in its current form.
We wouldn’t want that.
2237 requiring a certified birth certificate of candidates for federal office.
Even the white folks?
2501 requiring a 100 percent consensus vote by union members to be included in collective bargaining agreements.
Okay. We’ll do that when your district elects you with a 100% consensus vote.
2504 requiring the courts to give every woman who gets a restraining order a gun and box of ammunition and provide her with instruction in shooting.
If these women actually took those guns and ammo and started killing their abusers, how long do you suppose it would take them to repeal a law like this?
2521 repealing the interest and dividends tax in 2052.
We can’t seem to enact our 10 year transportation plan in 10 years, but we can plan this far ahead to eliminate revenue. That’s true dedication.
2617 relative to the definitions of resident for motor vehicle purposes and domicile for voting purposes and relative to vehicle registration and driver’s license requirements.
Would this impact a certain well-known GOP legislator who represents one district whilst living in another?
2663 providing an affirmative defense under emergency circumstances for persons under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance.
2791 establishing that the Portsmouth Navy Yard is within the borders of the state of New Hampshire.
Ah, if only Itse had gotten his army, we could start a war with Maine, and take the shipyard away from them.
