Exclamation Speed Limt Law on Winnipesaukee!!!

From Winnilakers.com :

Winnilakers,
I just got this information today in reference to the new speed law and the hearing date. I have attached the bill below. If you can, please see if you can make it to the hearing next week, Wednesday, January 19, 2004 at 11:00 am in Room 305 of the Legislative Office Building in Concord. You don't need to speak, but we need numbers there.

The bill is proposing a day time speed of 45 and a night speed limit of 25.

The local boat dealers and marine industry have banded together in the past using their own money and time to squash regulations like this.Lets hope it gets squashed again!

Hey hey... easy on the Mazzholes Jeesh! Some of us own houses on the lake and pay in while taking very little back... And my first thought was Mr. Littlefield too... they have been talking about this for a while but never seriously until he did his deed! Dumb-A$$!! (And I have known him personally for 15 years - can't say I'm proud of that these days )

I would have happily driven up but unfortunatly I have already booked up my week solid and I am on the ropes with a few customers as it is. Please keep me posted if there are to be any more meetings and perhaps you can let them know that most of us tax payers actually WORK.
