How to Look up a Bill

The legislative session for New Hampshire runs from January through June. Each session there are upwards of 1,000 bills that pass through the legislature. Each bill has to have at least one public hearing scheduled by the assigned committee. If the bill passes the first legislative body it then gets sent to the other body for the process to start over. 


The public hearings are an important time to get involved to help influence the decision of the Senators or Representatives that will be voting on that bill. If a bill significantly affects you or your family in a positive or negative way it is important to share that information with policymakers.
