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.

Pending Updates – stay tuned

SB 559 relative to the New Hampshire vaccine association Amended in Senate; allows the state to purchase any mRNA product for the failing Vaccines for Children program. (OPPOSE)

Contact House HHSEA Committee members ask them to please OPPOSE SB 559, with or without further amendments.
CLICK FOR REASONS TO OPPOSE SB 559


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, wouldput 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.

Please vote this bill as inexpedient to legislate (ITL).

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

RebuildNH offers this detail: “More bad news this week. The House passed the undesirable SB 417 without the amendment we supported to make it palatable, and without any changes the bill could further limit due process for parents when their natural right to raise their children is being challenged by DCYF. We really appreciated the amendment by the House Children and Family Law committee, but the House rejected this effort and passed the underlying bill without it, and then referred the bill to the Finance Committee for further work. If this bill passes as is, government court officials will determine whether a parent is fit to perform his or her parental duties relative to “the unique needs of the child, and whether or not the parent is adequately prepared to address those needs.” The state has no business making this determination. Parents ought to be innocent until proven guilty, and the state ought to present real evidence of wrongdoing before even considering an effort to challenge parental rights under the due process of law.

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.
