New Hampshire

New Hampshire established a state-level trade commission to look at NAFTA and the WTO agreements in 2007.  Commission members are drawn from all three branches of government, plus labor and business leaders. The New Hampshire Citizens Trade Policy Commission is educating its members, planning public hearings, and choosing areas of further study and response. Its next meeting will take place March 2, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. in room 307 of the Legislative Office Building. More information can be obtained by contacting Commission chair Senator Jacalyn Cilley through her staff member Patrick Murphy (patrick.murphy@leg.state.nh.us).

Senate Bill 162 draws on previous NH legislation and models from other states.
