Representative Jane Cormier has filed a bill in the NH legislature to abolish RPCs.
“She said that sheer number of references to the regional planning commissions in state statute belies the notion that they have only advisory authority.”
“All of those repeals,” she said. “How advisory is that?” That the commissions can be replaced by two planners at OEP, she said confirms that “municipalities will do just fine without the bloated bureaucracy,” which she described as “basically a money laundering thing.”
“The fight is on,” Cormier declared, “and we’re going for broke.”
Here is the full text of House Bill 1573.
