N.H. Fish and Game Commission to Study Landowner Liability Statutes
CONCORD, N.H. - Following a special meeting of the N.H. Fish and Game Commission on July 28, 2011, members of the Commission will be taking a look at ways to strengthen current statutes related to landowner liability.
Sharon Guaraldi, chair of the Commission, has asked for appropriate Commission subcommittees to take a closer look at relevant New Hampshire statutes with an eye toward some future legislative action. “Because of our concern about some recent issues,” Guaraldi stated, “we are going to undertake a serious review of the current situation with the intent to increase protections for both landowners and sportsmen and women who recreate on private lands.”
The Commission’s Policy and Legislative committees will report on their results later this year at a monthly Commission meeting. These meetings are open to the public and are held the third Wednesday of the month at Fish and Game Headquarters in Concord. For more information about the N.H.
