Belknap County residents have much to be proud of given the scope of work and expertise among our Belknap County House delegation.
Rep. David Huot (Laconia) has been named by the Speaker of the House to chair the Regulations Subcommittee which will study the bidding process, oversight, accountability and potential rule enforcement for any casino in N.H. as proposed by SB-152. The Speaker has promised a "thorough and transparent process" by which the casino proposal will be reviewed and Rep. Huot is an excellent choice to be a leader in that process.
Rep. Lisa DiMartino (Gilford and Meredith) has been named as a member of the Long Term Care Subcommittee of the House Human Services Oversight Committee, reflecting her knowledge and expertise in the field of long term care service delivery. This subcommittee is working closely with the Department of Health and Human Services as managed care is implemented and the expansion of Medicaid is discussed.
Rep. Ian Raymond (Sanbornton and Tilton) gave the introductory remarks on Sunday at the Local Energy Solutions annual conference held at Winnisquam High School which was key noted by Governor Maggie Hassan. Rep. Raymond brings his extensive knowledge in this field to his position on the House Science and Technology Committee as well.
Rep. Beth Arsenault (Laconia and Belmont) joined her mother, former Rep. Judie Reever, in a public discussion of the legislation currently under consideration by the N.H. Senate to repeal the education voucher statute. Rep. Arsenault and former Rep. Reever were seeking signatures for a petition urging the repeal of the education tax law by supporting HB-370 in the Senate.
These state reps donate their time and expertise to our state in order to develop policy and statutes that benefit us all. We owe them a huge thanks for all the work they do.
