HB390
(Election Law & Internal Affairs)

Relative to parties on certain election forms and ballots and Relative to the voter registration form used on the day of the general election.

Re-refer to committee

NAY

Current law allows for multiple parties to be recognized as political parties in NH, it only makes sense that the election forms would authorize inclusion of these parties.

Sections 1, 2 & 4 authorize the inclusion of additional parties on election forms.

Section 3 seems to be unrelated, as it eliminates the requirement that party columns be staggered on ballots.

We recommend voting AGAINST the Committee Recommendation to Re-refer, in order to hear an amendment to strike Section 3 of the bill.

HB580
(Ways & Means)

Regulating online fantasy sports contests.

OTP

NAY

HB580 is less bad than an outright prohibition; however the fees are high which could serve to exclude some of the smaller businesses in the industry; and HB580 could prohibit many fantasy sports games that currently exist.

HB562, which was retained by the House Ways & Means Committee, is a much better bill, in that it explicitly exempts “Online Gambling” from other gambling offenses.
