Week of June 11th:

SB 417 relative to out-of-home placements for children (OPPOSE)

A bill that RebuildNH has been fighting since January, went to Committee of Conference this week. RebuildNH's treasurer, Rep JR Hoell was on the committee and ensured that the bill was amended to protect families in New Hampshire. The bill now heads back to the full House and Senate to be concurred but RebuildNH no longer considers the bill to be a threat.

Special thanks to Rep JR Hoell and House leadership.

We have been fighting this bill since January. RebuildNH is asking that you tell your reps to support the amendment, which changes the bill from being a threat to families to a good bill for families, but oppose the bill if the amendment fails.

Democrats support this being a bad bill for families, but Republicans have largely agreed to kill this bill in its current form. The following Republicans need a call or text to be sure they support the amendment but oppose the bill if it is unamended. Remind them that opposing threats to liberty should be their top priority.

Rep Cocker: 603-892-7083
Rep Davis: 603-723-2929
Rep Pearson: 603-571-0205
Rep Pearson: 603-548-8523
Rep Prudhomme-O’Brien: 603-339-4598

SB 417, as passed by the Senate, was a dangerous bill for our families.  The House Children and Family law committee tried to amend it, but the committee amendment failed. 

If the bill is not modified, this threatening bill will head to the governor.

In addition to fixing the issues we previously had with the bill, House Finance made positive changes to the bill.  Current law requires that a parent NOT charged with abuse and neglect prove their innocence in court room before they can get their children. For example this could happen in a divorce situation. The amendment suggested by House Finance changes the underlying law so that a parent NOT charged with abuse or neglect is presumed fit.  The amendment also changes the standard of evidence  that the state would need to meet to ‘clear and convincing evidence’ to prevent children from going to the parent not Charged with Abuse and neglect 

Another Republican resigned last week. Numbers are tight. Make sure your reps will be in attendance. Republican turnout is critical to fixing SB417.

Talking points:

  • This is a limited government bill.
  • This bill is good for businesses that are currently being over regulated and taxed by health officers.
  • Health officers aren’t qualified health care professionals. They are volunteers who receive a 3 hour training.
  • Currently health officers have the ability to mandate anything they want at any time. This unlimited, god-like authority leaves the door open for potential abuses of government. A small government is a good government. 

Currently health officers have unlimited authority to make any ordinance they wish. This bill limits their ordinance authority to only “nuisances” and I now realize this term is pretty well defined in law. By passing this bill, health officers will no longer be able to make any ordinance in the next pandemic like we saw during Covid with mask mandates and such. (details courtesy of RebuildNH – they have been working on this issue for four years!)

Pending Updates – stay tuned

SB 349 relative to a voluntary home visiting (The State is coming after your children! (OPPOSE)

Let your Reps know to OPPOSE (click to find your rep)
CLICK FOR MORE DETAILS


The State is coming after your children! If this “Nanny State bill” passes, the obscure Wellness and Primary Prevention Council would meet to determine what legal language would be the most effective to “build a strong system of universal home visiting” for families with newborns and young children. The council itself was established by statute to increase government-created social services. It’s obvious that the purpose of this bill is to create a new social program so every newborn child and young child in the state would receive a visit from government agents to monitor how they are being raised before the state takes over completely in government-run schools. This effort is simply one more cradle-to-grave Nanny State nightmare scenario that all our dystopian fictions books warned about. Let’s stop this effort before it even begins.

SB 559 vaccine association bill (OPPOSE)

We're working to kill SB559.Please EMAIL your State Reps to vote ITL on SB559

Find Your State Reps
CLICK FOR MORE DETAILS

Talking Points:Please vote ITL on SB559, the vaccine association bill about new, unproven fast-tracked shots that are NOT vaccines.

1. Every baby in the state of NH who wants the RSV shots is getting them. No one is going without. (So this is not an access issue.)

2. Poor children/Medicaid children are getting these shots for FREE and it’s paid by the federal VFC Program. No cost to poor patients! (So this is not a cost issue for poor children.)

3. Commercially insured children are getting these shots for FREE and they are paid for by their health insurance without any deductible or copay (per Heidi Kroll, lobbyist for the health insurance industry.) So no cost to insured children.

4. Allowing the State and the Vaccine Association to engage in the purchase of new shots that are not vaccines, approved less than a year ago, with no system for tracking injuries from these shots, would put taxpayers on the hook for liability for the harm caused by the State purchase and sale of these new, unproven shots. Because these shots are not vaccines they lack the consumer protection of the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. Given that these shots are currently available now for anyone who wants them and they are free for anyone who gets them, this bill is totally unnecessary, and puts taxpayers at risk.Please vote this bill as inexpedient to legislate (ITL).

HB1365 relative to substitution of biological products by pharmacies (SUPPORT OTP)

This free market pharmeceutical bill allows for biosimilar substitutions, a practice that has been standard in Europe for years. Tell your senator to support this common sense, free market pharmaceutical bill.

Find Your Senator
CLICK FOR MORE DETAILS

This bill allows a pharmacist to substitute biosimilars. Biosimilars are drugs that have shown in clinical trials to be as safe and effective as to be comparable.

As an example, Humira is priced at $3,300, Drug B is $1,200 and Drug C is $600. Without the bill, should a provider prescribe B at $1,200 a pharmacist may only dispense drug B or Humira at $3,300. The bill allows a pharmacist to offer Drug C at $600 when Drug B at $1,200 has been prescribed, or Humira at $3,300.

Big Pharma does not like this bill because they obviously would like to keep their monopolies protected, but the European Medicines Association has been operating like this for years with no safety issues.

Pharmaceutical lobbyists have indicated that the FDA does not allow this type of substitution, but that isn’t true. There is nothing in federal code or statute that prohibits it.
