Yes, you read that correctly; the Dems voted all 9 amendments killed. Then the vote on bill OTP RC 202-132 passing this illegal bill, in my opinion. The policy has always been that any bill with money must be started in the House as a House Bill (HB). Many of us Republicans then filed a 2nd protest because of it being a Senate bill with money. The Dems then made a motion to “Reconsider”, saying vote no was made. With the Dem vote D 124-207, the bill can not be brought back up on the House floor. This is a training guide for anyone that is thinking of running for State Rep., giving you an idea of things to come should you be elected.
Some more of this crazy bunch of bills that the Dems have pushed through include:
HB-1372-FN-A, making an appropriation for the ongoing training and education of pediatric sexual assault nurse examiners. While the bill was well intentioned, it has many issues: (a) There is only one pediatric sexual assault doctor currently practicing in NH and this bill’s program will not train other doctors; (b) At the public hearings, no one explained why Dartmouth-Hitchcock (D-H) technical staff was being provided a stipend of several thousand dollars; (c) no one explained why technical staff at D-H were chosen especially as we have software and network experts in our own State Dept. of Information Technology; (d) no estimate for the number of nurses to be trained if money for was provided; (e) no estimate of the number of existing and practicing pediatric sexual assault nurse examiner (SANE) in NH if money was provided, but we did learn there is only one doctor; (f) this should have been part of the budget; (g) we have other approved programs, but none of them receive monetary support; (h) we have not been paying for training of other professionals who are required to take continuing education courses, so why these? The Dems. pushed bill through as OTP D 188-119.
