Issues

Ski pass gift exemption

On January 30, 2013, Coulombe, with co-sponsors Andrew Schmidt and Herbert Richardson, introduced HB 514 to permit New Hampshire legislators to accept free ski passes from the government-owned Cannon Mountain ski area. Responding to a January 2012 request from Representative Edmond Gionet, the Chairman Martin Gross of the New Hampshire General Court's Legislative Ethics Committee issued an advisory opinion which said that legislators were banned from accepting Cannon Mountain ski passes because such gifts had a value of more than $25, the maximum acceptable gift under New Hampshire's anti-graft regulations. HB 514 would have created an exemption to the $25 limit specifically for Cannon Mountain ski passes.[1][2]

On February 20, 2013, the House voted to accept the majority report labeling the bill 'inexpedient to legislate,' effectively killing the bill.[3]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in New Hampshire

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of New Hampshire scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
