In order to provide better information and data to the New Hampshire Legislature for deliberation on pending legislation, as well as to the public in general, the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration has created FN Quick Guides. These "Quick Guides" are created from the Department's Fiscal Note Worksheets which are submitted to the Legislative Budget Assistant in the drafting of the fiscal notes for certain House and Senate bills. The Department hopes the Quick Guides will be a useful source of information for Legislators and the public.
To access a copy of any bill referenced below, please go to www.gencourt.state.nh.us and enter the bill number within "Find a Bill" in the State Legislation Dash Board.
FN Quick Guides for bills in the 2011 - 2013 Legislative Session may be obtained by emailing the Department at: DRALegislativeGroup@DRA.NH.GOV and specifying the particular bill and session year you are requesting.
Note: 2011/2012 FN Quick Guides were only drafted for the bill "as introduced" and not for the bill "as amended."
