New Hampshire Statutes

Revised Statutes Annotated

Laws of 2019, Chapter 205 (HB 669) amended several sections of the Revised Statutes Annotated (RSA). We can't show you those sections in the RSAs yet because the print and online RSAs haven't been updated yet. The Revised Statutes Online should be updated around September/October of 2019. The print version of the RSAs will be updated later in the fall. Until then, to see the text of the law, use the Final Version link to the left.
