NH: House committee passes bill prohibiting restrictions on where sex offenders can live

A House committee easily passed a bill, 18-1, prohibiting restrictions on where sex offenders can live yesterday, noting that judges have twice ruled residency restrictions unconstitutional. Still, lawmakers predicted a tough fight in the Senate, which has rejected similar bills before. Full Article

    As I see more and more judges adhering to the state constitutions, I’m more and more impressed by those who founded them long ago and these judges who respect their content.
    I might add it’s also quite refreshing when lawmakers learn to do the right thing even when it’s unpopular.

      Doing the right thing even when it’s unpopular is a sure fire indicator of a just and moral man/woman, all others are nothing more than self seeking immoral people that I wish could somehow be exposed for what they really are and be made to step down.

      The constitutions were founded long ago but I don’t believe people are that different. They had a lot of problems with their justice system back then (read Disipline and Punish by Michel Foucault, a good read for evolution of the penal system)and it lead to social unrest and later revolution. Back then your life could be ruined for stealing a chicken. I see going to prison for failure to register as a good modern equivalent. Constitutions were put in place to keep the laws within some bounds of civilized propriety. They work when people realize they preserve law and order, not act as an obstacle to them.

    OMG! If something is unconstitutional in NH isn’t it unconstitutional in California???

      You would think so, but since when did that ever stop California(both state and local governments) from doing it anyway?

      Typically a State Supreme Court will decide on the constitutionality of a law based on their state constitution and not the federal constitution. Having said that, the Unruh Law in our State constitution offers a very broad right to fair housing. If RSOL can raise the money, I think we can wipe out housing restrictions.

    Maybe if we ask nicely we can get New Hamshires house committee to educate Californias house committee!!!!!!
