What can I do to help?
Help others recognize the benefits and services that Fish and Game brings to everyone in New Hampshire, and share your views on current bills.
- Be heard: Contact your local legislators and those on key committees.
- Be seen: Attend hearings to express your opinions.
From the NH General Court website: "Citizen Participation: You have many opportunities to impact this process, including testifying at hearings, writing letters or making phone calls to your representatives, or working with organizations to create awareness of the possible impact of a piece of legislation. You should know that New Hampshire's "citizen legislature" is a great source of state pride, and that Representatives and Senators welcome phone calls at home since most of them don't have offices at the State House, and have little or no staff to help them gather information. To contact your Legislator you may call the House Clerk's office (603) 271-2548 or the Senate Clerk's office (603) 271-3420 for more information."
