Legislation to Watch

The following are the choice related legislative initiatives we are tracking for the 2013-2014 session.

 

Pro-Choice Legislation:

 

AN ACT RELATIVE TO ACCESS TO REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH CARE FACILITIES

Bill Number: SB 319 (view bill)

House Status: PASSED/ADOPTED WITH AMENDMENT

Senate Status: CONCURRED

Sponsor(s): Sen. Soucy, Dist 18; Sen. D'Allesandro, Dist 20; Sen. Odell, Dist 8; Sen. Stiles, Dist 24; Sen. Bradley, Dist 3; Rep. Long, Hills 42; Rep. Heath, Hills 14; Rep. Bouchard, Merr 18

 

Violence, intimidation, and harassment of patients and employees of reproductive health care facilities is unacceptable. Governor Hassan signed the bill into law June 10, 2014, effective a month later, July 10, 2014. However, after SCOTUS's ruling on buffer zones the Patient Safety Zone remains up in the air.
