New Hampshire Constitutional Amendment on Privacy on November 6 Ballot

If you live and vote in New Hampshire, this article is for you. According to a message on the IAJGS Mailing List:

New Hampshire voters will have two constitutional amendment to vote on during the November 6 election: Privacy and Right to Sue.

The question on privacy asks voters to add the following language to their state constitution:

An individual’s right to live free from governmental intrusion in private or personal information is natural, essential, and inherent.” The House passed the proposed amendment 235-96. The Senate passed it 15-9.

The other initiative on right to sue would allow any taxpayer who is registered to vote to sue local or state governments alleging misuse of public funds. This comes about as a result of a 2014 state Supreme Court ruling in which a former member of state Board of Education was blocked from challenging newly-created education tax credits.

Two-thirds vote in approval is required for the constitutional amendments to be adopted.
