CONCORD, NH – Gov. Chris Sununu on June 16 signed 38 bills into law, all of which are listed and linked below.

The new laws cover a wide-range of ground, including: rules for veterinarians prescribing opioids (the law removes veterinarians from compliance with the controlled drug prescription health and safety program) ; livestock and meat inspection (a lengthy bill that reinforces requirements about slaughter of livestock and birds, and adds to the definition of “humane treatment” of animals during slaughter); alcoholic cider production by brew pubs (got a thumbs-up); the inclusion of “chronic pain” as a prerequisite of therapeutic cannabis; approval of a needle exchange program (as part of The Opiate-Opioid Public Health Crisis NH Comprehensive Response); and separate bills that govern the emergency out-of-home placement of children for their wellbeing,  and supports for aging adults with dementia.
