House Republican Alliance: Statement on House Procedure

he House Republican Alliance issued a statement on the debate of SB 413, a bill to expand Medicaid in New Hampshire.

"We have many pressing bills ahead of us today and SB 413 is not one of them.  The bill is a Senate bill and not due out under our house rules until May.  The other 80 plus bills are due out by the end of the week.  There is no reason this needs to be rushed through the full house like it was rushed through the committee," stated Rep. Carol McGuire, Epsom.  "The decision to debate this bill now, knowing full well it will be a lengthy debate, is an obvious obstruction of House business."
