Ski pass gift exemption
On January 30, 2013, Schmidt co-sponsored Gary Coulombe's HB 514. Also co-sponsored by Herbert Richardson, HB 514 would have permitted 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 L. 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.
On February 20, 2013, the House voted to accept the majority report labeling the bill 'inexpedient to legislate,' effectively killing it.
Schmidt won re-election in the 2012 election for New Hampshire House of Representatives, Sullivan 1. Schmidt advanced past the September 11 primary and won re-election in the general election which took place on November 6, 2012.
On November 2, 2010 Schmidt won election to the New Hampshire House of Representatives.
