Law signed for New Hampshire State House Bicentennial Week

March 22, 2019

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire’s first new law of 2019 looks to both the future and the state’s past.

Republican Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill into law Friday declaring June 2 to June 8 as New Hampshire State House Bicentennial Week. A commission has been planning numerous events, including music, fireworks, a panel discussion for former governors and a Legislative Old Home Day to invite back all living former lawmakers on June 6.

The Statehouse opened on June 2, 1819. The building is the oldest state capitol in which both houses of the Legislature meet in their original chambers.
