Hearing May 28, 2009, on Amendment Affecting Wild Goose Public Boating Access Project on Sunapee Lake

CONCORD, N.H. -- Persons interested in the proposed Wild Goose public boating access site at Lake Sunapee should be aware that a hearing will take place on Thursday, May 28, 2009, at 8:30 a.m., regarding a late change to House Bill 45, that could have a dramatic impact on the process for site permitting.

According to the NH Senate calendar issued on May 21, 2009, at the May 28 hearing, "There will be an amendment proposed which will add new text to the bill and will change the title to read:  'HB 45, relative to the water supply land conservation program, establishing a committee to study a proposal by the fish and game department to construct a certain boat ramp, and establishing a moratorium on proceedings for permits required for such boat ramp.'"  (Senate calendar: gencourt.state.nh.us/scaljourns/calendars/2009/sc%2025.html. Current bill language: www.gencourt.state.nh.us/legislation/2009/HB0045.html. New bill text is not available as of May 22, 2009.)

The hearing takes place on Thursday, May 28, at 8:30 a.m., before the N.H. Senate Energy, Environment and Economic Development Committee in Rooms 305-307 of the Legislative Office Building in Concord, N.H.
