HOUSE PASSES BILL TO PROTECT NH STATE PARKS FROM CONTAMINATION

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – April 9, The House of Representatives passed House Bill 177, prohibiting the sitting of a landfill near a state park. After the vote, Representative Andrew Bouldin (D-Manchester) released the following statement:


"HB 177 would establish a 2-mile buffer zone protecting New Hampshire State Parks from the harmful effects of landfills. This policy is not ground-breaking, as many states have realized the severe detrimental effects landfill can have like diminished public enjoyment, cancer-causing risk to visitors, harmful effects to wildlife, failures of water systems, and increased vehicular traffic from hundreds of tractor trailers filled to the brim with garbage. I am proud that the House chose to protect our parks and the health of our entire state for future generations.”
