Good news...bad news....

It looks like the senate will kill hb162, a majority has already declared their opposition.

The supporters have found a law that allows local towns to set their own speed limits on lakes. The town of Meredith is ready to pass a 45/25 speed limit in the town if hb162 fails. It only requires a vote of 2 of the 3 selectmen. This will effect about 20% of the lake. It could take effect this summer.

I have a neighbor works at Meredith town hall, assistant town manager or something. Some charts show where town lines are, how do you know for sure in a boat tho.

The commissioner of safety can also set a speed limit as an administrative rule. Takes a petition of 200 people or something to bring it to him.

The Meredith police have a patrol boat they keep at the public docks in the NWZ.

Good question about the MP, will they enforce a local ordinance?
