(This template for town websites was developed by the LWVNH after a thorough study of NH town websites. The League discovered that accurate and complete voter information was missing from or hard to find on many town sites. The League hopes towns will consider using this template to improve their websites and make voting information more accessible to their residents.)
A webinar to explain the template and why these improvements are helpful for voters and officials will be live on the internet on March 26, 2014, noon to 1 pm. Registration will be available at http://nhmunicipal.org/. The webinar will be archived for later viewing as well.
"The Agriculture Update will focus narrowly on:
1) current technology issues in agriculture including genetically modified organisms (GMOs), herbicides, pesticides, agriculture water pollution, aquifer depletion, antibiotics in livestock, and accurate food labeling; and
2) current agriculture finance issues including consolidation in agriculture industries, crop subsidies and the federal agricultural regulatory process."
Study materials developed by the national study committee are now available. See below.
Consensus meetings of local/state study committees will be held before April 2014 and results submitted to the LWVUS study committee by April 18, 2014. Consensus questions have been released (see below).
News item: Washington state voters defeated a much-published GMO-labeling bill Nov. 5, 2013.
On this site, we will post additional articles and links to current events or NH-specific aspects of agriculture. We will also post the times and places of local League consensus meetings. Any League member is welcome to attend a consensus meeting.
All League members are encouraged to become informed on this topic in order to be part of the consensus phase of the study.
