NH House Committees will have Subpoena Power - Update on Rule Change & Meaning

annmarietimmins of the concord monitor tweeted at 10:48 am today the following:

#NHHouse votes 241-114 to let cmttes or Speaker alone - not full House - to issue subpoenas to compel witnesses to testify. #nhpolitics

Thank you New Hampshire Legislator's

What this means is:

A rule change was made to establish a procedure for considering and issuing subpoenas. No subpoenas have issued and no request to issue a subpoena is before the Rules Committee, which now must authorize the issuance of a subpoena and can only do so following a public hearing.
