What Happened Last Week & Next Steps for #TransBillNH February 5, 2018

On Wednesday, we packed the State House in Concord as the House Judiciary Committee heard testimony on HB 1319, outnumbering our opponents 10-1. Our crowd was so big the hearing was reassigned to Representatives Hall, and we nearly filled that 400-seat chamber.

But that’s just the beginning. As the hearing neared the 4-hour mark, the Committee decided to adjourn and reconvene later so that all could have their testimony heard.

We don’t know when the Committee will reconvene, but it will be soon, possibly as soon as mid-next week. We have to keep up the momentum and be ready at a moment’s notice to pack the State House again.

We also need to know if you have testimony that you didn’t get to read at Wednesday’s hearing. We’ll make sure you have the chance to read it, or make arrangements to have it read if you can’t make it to the next hearing.

And we really need you to make it. It will be even more important to see our supporters number in the hundreds at the next hearing. We know our opponents are using this time to organize, and we have to overwhelm — again — their fear-mongering testimony.

The Judiciary Committee could announce their second hearing on HB 1319 any day now, and we have to be ready to make the case for why the Granite State needs #TransBillNH: Let us know you want to be at the next hearing.
