President, Right to Know NH
SB 555, which would have established an Ombudsman and Right to Know Appeals Commission was recently voted Inexpedient To Legislate by the House last Thursday. During the House session, Rep. Lynne Ober of Hudson made a number of comments which were factually incorrect and I feel compelled to provide a rebuttal to several of Rep. Ober’s remarks.
I was one of the 13 members on the Commission which met for several months and made the recommendation for the Ombudsman. I also was one of the members who drafted the Commission’s findings report and assisted in the drafting of SB 555.
