This morning the New Hampshire House of Representatives decided not to move forward with HB 110, a bill that would have chilled speech protected by the First Amendment, infringed upon the constitutional right against self-incrimination, and required every citizen to become a police informant.
“We welcome the decision of the New Hampshire House not to move forward with a bill that would have infringed upon basic constitutional rights” said Devon Chaffee, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union. “HB 110 would have put an unacceptable burden on New Hampshire citizens, requiring them to act as agents of law enforcement.”
