Legislative Committee Approves Bill to Establish a Commission to Study OHRV Use in the State
The House Committee on Resources, Recreation and Development approved House Bill 1188, legislation to establish a commission to study OHRV use in the state. The Forest Society testified in support during the public hearing on the bill.
On February 9, the Committee voted unanimously in support of the amended bill. The Committee-passed version includes on the study commission a representative from either the Forest Society, the Appalachian Mountain Club or the Nature Conservancy on the Study Commission.
The full House must now consider HB1188 at its next voting session. The date for that session has yet to be announced. Because of the unanimous committee vote, we expect the full House will also approve the bill. Once that action occurs, HB 1188 will move over to the NH Senate for consideration.
