do so since 2000 - Scoutmaster and emcee Bill Zaharchuk brought his “quiet leadership and determination” to the forefront, an unlikely spot for an ever-humble Undercofler. An Alvirne grad and newly minted freshman at Southern NH University, Michael is also known for his individuality, wild hairstyles, and many talents (from guitars and cameras to dutch ovens). Undercofler’s dry wit and warm authenticity also shone through at his Eagle Court as he sincerely thanked “everyone who helped him” in his rebuttal, most especially his family and Eagle advisors, Steve Quinn and Paul Hamilton. Mike’s Dad, Joe Undercofler, his former cub leader and a Troop 20 Assistant Scoutmaster who has shepherded the majority of the troop’s Scouts through their Eagle projects in the last decade, stepped up for his parent response concluding, “Michael has grown into a fine young man and we are so very, very proud of him.” From the Hudson community, thank you to Michael – and his family and Troop 20 village - on a job well done in beautifully restoring a very special part of Benson’s Park and creating a unique time capsule for all to enjoy. Congratulations on achieving the highest rank of Eagle Scout.

Rep. Happenings - continued from front page
possession of firearms or knives on any property owned, in whole or in part, by the state, or an agency, political subdivision, committee, or other governmental unit thereof, unless expressly authorized in statute.” This bill also states, “The general court shall have exclusive authority and jurisdiction by statute over the sale, purchase, ownership, use, possession, transportation, licensing or permitting, taxation, or other matters pertaining to firearms, firearms components, ammunition, firearms supplies, and knives in the state.” This bill will go to the Senate. HB 217 passed by a vote of 213 to 125 and makes it a crime to
knowingly and purposefully cause the death of a fetus that is 24 weeks or older.
In a hotly contested discussion, HB 446, which repealed a number of professional licenses, was defeated. As Litchfield Representative Laura Gandia pointed out, it allowed people to obtain licenses but retained performance penalties for only those who did get a license and allowed those who chose to operate without a license to also be without penalty for poor performance. In the past each of these licenses was individually discussed and established.
A constitutional amendment (CACR11), which would have
provided that judges be appointed to terms of five years rather than for life, was debated and referred back to the committee that did the original work on this bill.
HB 628 deals with examinations by TSA personnel. Some felt that this should be a federal issue and not a state issue, but the bill passed by a vote of 188 to 136. This bill was in response to the public outcry against the search methods of the TSA and will now go to the Senate.
HB 618 will require that state agencies use performance measures. This is a continued step, supported by agency heads, to streamline state government and ensure that the state is doing what it should and not expanding into areas that are not appropriate.
After calling states that use performance based budgeting the Finance Committee learned that the state should begin with the development of measures that will provide guidelines of effectiveness and then move into performance based budgeting effectively and commonly used in many private areas today. This will go to the Senate. HB 171 allows the Liquor Commission to revoke a liquor license if an establishment is the repeated scene of violence, while at the same time prohibits them for making a negative ruling against granting a license based on employee or patron clothing, sign, symbol, logo, letter, physical marking, or tattoo. HB 545 deals with home-
schooling issues. Under this bill, parents will have five working days after the decision to home school to notify the school district. It removes the annual notification requirement and makes minor changes to the Home Education Advisory Council. This will go to the Senate.
HB 533 provides methodology to once again begin state aid for school construction projects. The methodology will change so that the state is providing first dollar grants, which saves school districts a large amount of interest dollars over the life of the bond. This will go to the Senate. The House met on January 11 will reconvene on January 18.
