HB 1007 (2022)

Make "insurrection or rebellion" grounds to exclude someone from state office


Allows the House and Senate to remove a legislator from office if they determine the legislator "engaged in insurrection or rebellion, or [has] given aid or comfort to the enemies of the state." The bill also states that anyone who "engaged in insurrection or rebellion against the United States, or who gave aid or comfort to the enemies thereof" is ineligible to run for office. The bill makes clear that "insurrection or rebellion" includes advocating for New Hampshire to secede from the United States.
