Fish and Game Commission Working to Strengthen Protections for Landowners
CONCORD, N.H. -- By unanimous vote at its August 17, 2011, meeting, the New Hampshire Fish and Game Commission will continue its work with members of the Legislature, other state agencies and interested organizations to strengthen protections in state law for landowners who leave their land open for recreational activities in New Hampshire.
The Commission and the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department have been working actively with State Representative Gene Chandler and State Senator Andy Sanborn to review options that would increase protection for landowners while maintaining access.
"Everyone who walks on a piece of private land in the state should be concerned about the potential loss of access," said Glenn Normandeau Executive Director of the N.H. Fish and Game Department.
