Workforce Housing Challenge Killed

HB 1297, the latest attempt to undermine the NH Workforce Housing Law, which had proposed requiring towns to receive approval by the local legislative body (i.e., town meeting or ballot) before applying for or accepting “workforce housing grants,” was killed on the House floor March 5. The Municipal and County Government Committee had unanimously recommended HB 1297 inexpedient to legislate,and the House adopted this recommendation without debate.
