Legislative Update - May 31, 2022

By NAIFA-New Hampshire on Jun 1, 2022 3:20:57 PM

On Thursday, May 26, the House and Senate met to vote on Committee of Conference reports. The Committee of Conference process is used to reconcile differences between differing version of the same bill. For example, if the House passes a bill. The Senate must hold a hearing on the same bill. If they amend the bill, there would now be two differing versions of the same piece of legislation. Committees of Conference allow for Representatives and Senators to discuss their separate versions and determine if a compromise can be reached.

By NAIFA-New Hampshire on Mar 29, 2022 1:44:39 PM

The unofficial halftime of each legislative session is referred to as “Crossover”. This is the date by which the House must complete their work on Senate bills and the Senate must complete their work on House bills. Those bills which were passed by either the House or Senate crossover to the other body. The crossover date this year is March 31. The Legislature is scheduled to complete their work prior to Memorial Day. The second half of the legislative session will have a brisk pace since there will be a lot of issues remaining with not that much time to work.

NAIFA-NH Legislative Update - February 2022

By NAIFA-New Hampshire on Feb 22, 2022 3:13:41 PM

The New Hampshire legislative process has remained basically unchanged for many years. Our process is different than those used in many other states. In NH, every bill that is introduced must receive a public hearing, a vote in the committee, and, at some point, a vote before the full legislative body. The system provides a clear and consistent process that all bills must follow.

A Stronger Individual Market

By NAIFA-New Hampshire on Oct 20, 2021 12:18:15 PM

For the Monitor

By Christopher Nicolopoulos & D.J. Bettencourt


In the fall of 2017, New Hampshire’s individual health insurance market was in jeopardy. Nationally, some states were seeing all participating insurers exit the individual market, leaving Americans with no options to purchase an individual market health plan. The Affordable Care Act’s (ACA) vision for a reformed individual market was wobbling under the weight of increased costs and financial losses that made the market unsustainable for both consumers and insurers. The ACA needed a change, but Congress was gridlocked over how to approach it.

NAIFA-NH Legislative Update - October 2021

By NAIFA-New Hampshire on Oct 18, 2021 3:00:00 PM

This year, members of the NH House of Representatives were able to file bills for the 2022 legislative session between September 13 and September 17. House members provide information to professional staff at the State House who assist them in developing language for their legislation. Once the staff receives the request for drafting, a one sentence summary of their ideas are made public. While few specifics are available, you can get a sense of the topics on which the legislators will focus in the upcoming session. In addition, you can determine the volume of bills.
