Subcommittee to vote on key Oct. 10 - Supporters should stand up for HB-192

Please come to a Hearing on October 10th in Concord, NH.

A House subcommittee votes this Wednesday on HB 192, our legislation to make the Department of Corrections write administrative rules for several controversial prison programs. These include probation, community parole supervision, the placement of women in the secure psychiatric unit, and the sex offender treatment programs inside and outside the prison.

Please attend a crucial hearing Aug. 2

By Chris Dornin, Legislative Policy Committee Chair

The State House Professional Conduct Committee will hear our complaint Aug. 2 against Rep. John Sytek. As a legislative committee vice chairman he helped kill our bills in 2017 and 2018 to make the Department of Corrections get its policies approved by lawmakers as administrative rules. We asked him to recuse himself on both pieces of legislation, HB 192 followed by SB 373, because he is married to the head of the Parole Board. He refused to do so. Our complaint will help decide if that was a proper decision.

Rep. John Sytek helped to scuttle SB 373 this month, our bill to force the Department of Corrections to get its policies approved by lawmakers as formal administrative rules.
