Update on SB 227
SB 227, relative to library funds, was filed by Senator Andrew Hosmer (D-Laconia) at the request of a constituent. The intent of the bill was to save libraries bank fees associated with maintaining multiple bank accounts in order to keep certain non-lapsing funds separate from town funds. Several library advocates, including NHLTA, decided to oppose the bill due to potential unintended consequences. At the bill's hearing before the Senate Public and Municipal Affairs Committee on January 22, Senator Hosmer asked that the bill be voted "inexpedient to legislate,” essentially killing the bill.
