Bills & Laws

The Legislature operates by creating, eliminating, or augmenting the laws of the State, also known as the RSAs.


All laws must comply with the New Hampshire Constitution.

How a Bill Becomes a Law:

Any Representative or Senator may sponsor a bill.  Those that pass in both the House and the Senate, and are also signed by the Governor, become laws.  The complete process is outlined in the New Hampshire Almanac: How a Bill Becomes a Law.


The progress of each bill can be checked online.

Concurrent Resolutions

 Administrative Rules are the regulations that implement the laws.
