Talking Points and Tips for Budget Hearing

Tips on Giving Budget Testimony or Writing Letters

Who is Your NH Representative?

This is the time for your legislators to hear from YOU. They need to hear your voice, receive your letters and to know that there are real people who depend on the decisions they make which affect your lives. Whether you give testimony or simply show up, your presence makes a big difference.

Please help support these bills. The more who can contact their legislators, the more likely they will be to pass legislation affecting you.
