HB 227 (2021)

Allows a landlord to evict a tenant at the expiration of the term of the lease or tenancy, if the term is longer than six months.  The House amended the bill to also require the landlord to give 30 days' notice.

HB 458 (2021)

Repeals the the law that requires public middle schools and high schools to provide menstrual hygiene products at no cost. This bill then permits school health departments "to make reasonable efforts to secure, through grants and donations, and distribute menstrual hygiene products to students in need."

HB 542 (2021)

Excludes religious gatherings from any prohibition on in-person gatherings during a state of emergency.  The House amended the bill to more broadly protect religious activities. The Senate amended the bill to narrow its scope again; the Senate version requires the state to allow religious services and other activities to proceed to the same or greater extent as other essential business activity during a state of emergency.

HB 625 (2021)

Prohibits abortion after 24 weeks gestation, unless there is a medical emergency.  There are no exceptions for rape or incest.

The House and Senate added a similar ban to the 2021 state budget bill.

SB 141 (2021)

Authorizes the FBI to conduct all National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) searches concerning the purchase, sale, and transfer of firearms through Federal Firearm Licensees operating in New Hampshire. This bill then abolishes the "gun line" in the State Police and repeals the state’s partial point of contact system for handguns, allowing the authority to remain exclusively with the FBI.

SB 61 (2021)

Right-to-work bill that prohibits collective bargaining agreements that require employees to join or contribute to a labor union.

SB 89 (2021)

The House voted to add a new section to the bill that states New Hampshire election laws will not be affected by the passage of the federal "For the People Act."  Supporters argue that this is an important measure to protect the integrity of New Hampshire elections from federal interference.  Opponents argue it is unconstitutional to attempt to nullify federal laws, and this measure could require New Hampshire to run two separate election systems, one for state officials and one for federal officials.

Position on Issues

Candidate's Facebook Page, 2018

"I believe safety should be the driving force in considering any guidelines for firearms while preserving recreational use. I support background checks for all gun sales and transfers, and the elimination of bump stocks. Both of these measures are fully consistent with the Second Amendment."

Candidate's Facebook Page, 2018

"I view taxes as how each of us contributes to the betterment of our community. They should be fair, fiscally sound and have a good return on investment. For this reason, the state should regularly review its taxes with all options and possible changes on the table. What are their goals? Are they meeting those goals? Would some other measure accomplish those goals better? This discussion must include the dependence on property taxes and the role of any current or anticipated broad based taxes."

Candidate's Facebook Page, 2018

"I believe we must update our current energy sources by transitioning away from coal and oil to more environmentally friendly sources such as wind, solar, hydro, and new generation nuclear power. While looking forward, we must also maintain the sources we currently have such a hydro facilities that need upgrading. Also, the current RGGI (Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative) should place more emphasis on green energy development."
