How Bill becomes Law

Residents sometimes ask how they can get a piece of legistlation before the NH House or Senate for consideration. The State's page answers that question with an outline of how an idea goes from paper to law.

A private citizen, interest group or other who wishes to propose legislation must find a sponsor in the legislative body to submit their suggestion for drafting. All drafted bills must be approved and signed by the sponsoring legislator.

A list of NH Legislatures is available at Enter the Town of Hudson (or Hillsborough District 27) and "GO!"
