Repealing Prohibition on Prostitution: Full Hearing Video and Press Conference

January 30th, 2016 - 10:06pm by FTL_Ian in

Elizabeth Edwards is a Free State Project early mover and elected democrat state representative who has heroically put forth the only proposed repeal of the prohibition on prostitution that I’ve heard of in my near-decade here in New Hampshire.

Were HB 1614 to pass, adults in NH would be able to trade sex for money without fear of arrest, prosecution, and jail. It does NOT create a regulatory structure (legalization) it just strikes the statutes criminalizing prostitution, and keeps in place prohibition on sex slavery.

It’s an excellent bill and surprisingly, everyone who testified on it, testified in favor. However, the cowardly chiefs of police did submit written testimony against it. Here’s full video of the press conference and the hearing in front of the Criminal Justice committee:

Will the bill have a chance the first year out? Probably...

Here’s another video compilation of me speaking to various NH state house committees over the last couple of weeks:

Bills I testified on included:

HB 1616 – would give NH people an opt-in to federal REAL ID compliance for their driver’s license. HB 1610 – would make possession of up to two ounces of cannabis by people 21+ legal CACR 24 – proposed constitutional amendment to enshrine the right to travel HB 1476 – would allow people under 16 to work with parental permission rather than a school bureaucrat

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):
