Letter: Bill would protect New Hampshire citizens’ rights

To the editor:

On Feb. 21, the State-Federal Relations and Veterans Affairs Committee heard compelling testimony from a large group of impassioned New Hampshire citizens about why it should vote for HB 399, the Liberty Preservation Act. This bill prohibits the state from supporting or implementing two sections of the National Defense Authorization Act. The parts that are of concern in the NDAA are those that would detain American citizens without charge or trial for an indefinite period of time. A week later, the committee voted unanimously in favor of this bill, 16-0.

The Liberty Preservation Act, HB 399, will be voted on by our representatives on March 13. Anyone who cares for their civil liberties should phone, email, or write to their representatives to make sure they understand what these two sections of the NDAA mean and urge them to vote for HB 399 if they are interested in protecting the rights of New Hampshire citizens.
