New Hampshire Constitution

Legislative Branch

Legislative calendars list the business that has been scheduled in the legislature. They include hearing notices, committee reports, bill amendments, and more. The House and the Senate have separate calendars. During the legislative session, the calendars will be published several times a week. 

Legislative journals are the records of what occurred on the floor of the Senate and House of Representatives. There are two versions of journals: the daily, or working, journals which are published within a few days of each completed floor session, and the official, permanent journals which are bound and edited versions of the daily journals. The permanent journals are indexed in several ways and include transcriptions of all remarks on the floor of the Senate and selective transcriptions of House remarks. 

House and Senate Sessions

As of May 19, 2022, the archive of House and Senate Sessions is unavailable. The Legislature assures us this is temporary. Until it's restored, contact the House or Senate clerks' offices to request a copy of the media file you need for your research. 

Streaming media files of Senate and House floor debate are available online. If you are researching a recent law, you will need to use the daily Journals and streaming media files because there’s a delay of a year or more between the publication of the print permanent Journals and the end of a session. Also, you may want to listen to the House floor sessions even if you have the House Journal; debate in the House is not routinely transcribed in the House Journal. 

Committee Hearings

For copies of media files for past years, contact the House and Senate clerks' offices.

Files from 2020 to the present are on YouTube. 

Once you're on the YouTube channel, there are different ways to find videos 

From the Menu below the channel name:

  • Click on VIDEOS  to see all the videos. Once there you can sort by Most Popular, Date added (Oldest) and Date added (Newest).
  • Click on PLAYLISTS to see videos grouped by committee. For 2022 committees, the year has been added to the playlist name.  If you click on VIEW FULL PLAYLIST you'll see all the videos for a particular committee organized chronologically from oldest to newest. 
  • To keyword search just the channel, click the right arrow next to ABOUT and the search icon will appear. Click the search icon and enter keywords into the box. 

The Law Library has the old volumes of the NH RSAs in print. If what you need isn't online, email us at lawlibrary@courts.state.nh.us and we'll scan and send it to you.
