    Calling all GPAA members, dredgers and prospectors.

     

    New Hampshire HB 591 An act relative to suction dredging in the surface waters of the state.  [Bill Text] introduced by Rep Lee Oxenham.

     

    This bill will prohibit the use of suction  dredges, highbankers and rockerboxes in the state of New Hampshire. This bill has already passed the house vote and has been referred to the senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. There is yet to be a public hearing, the date has not been determined. I called the Aide to the committee yesterday and was informed that they want to go through the senate bills before getting into the house bills, this could be several business days it could be a week or a little more, what ever it may be it seems they want to move fast on it.

     

    You can read the news article from the Concord Monitor here: http://www.concordmonitor.com/dredging-bill-new-hampshire-8301944 just copy and paste the link into your web browser to read it, warning it is full of BS.

     

    Please contact the committee members and inform them that you oppose this bill and why. inform them that there have been scientific studies and reports performed on suction dredging and that they need to review this information before making a decision on this legislation. All legislation should be based on facts that are available. Not seeking out the facts  on a matter is an injustice to the people of the state of New Hampshire. Below you will find a list of the committee members, please contact them.
