Hearing on Underage Drinking Bill

January 30th, 2016 - 12:14pm by FTL_Ian in

On January 26th, I recorded most of the hearing on a bill ( HB 1606 ) that would allow 18-20 year olds to drink alcohol with someone 21 and up. In addition to fear-mongering cops testifying against the bill, the video ends with an epic nearly 20 minute Q&A for me by the reps on the criminal justice committee. Also, don’t miss the excellent testimony by Keene representative Tim Robertson. Here’s the video (it’s not the full hearing as I had to leave for a different hearing):

Video of Approval Voting Bill Hearings

January 30th, 2016 - 1:05am by FTL_Ian in

Multiple Free State Project early movers, including state reps, testified on January 19th about approval voting in front of the Elections committee. Approval voting allows voters to check off as many candidates as they like in a race, which means there’s no “wasted vote syndrome” that would prevent people from voting for a third party candidate. Everyone except the deputy secretary of state testified in favor of it. Here’s the full video of the hearings for HB 1265 and HB 1521 :

Video of Hearing on Proposed AirBnB / Room-Share Regulations

January 29th, 2016 - 4:17pm by FTL_Ian in

Conan and I were two of the only people who spoke against the proposal to regulate room-shares like AirBnB in New Hampshire ( HB 1590 ) in the Commerce committee at the state house legislative office building on January 19th. Here’s the full video of all the testimony on the bill. Like the UBER / ride-sharing regulatory proposal , the existing regulated industry was present to call for more regulation, rather than freedom for everyone, which was Conan’s and my argument:
