Latest Round of Seatbelt Legislation | Where do you stand?
Seatbelts are a major topic of discussion across New Hampshire. The House recently approved a measure that would make New Hampshire the last state in the union to enact a mandatory adult seatbelt law.
The question is...where do you stand on this issue?
Proponents of the bill site the federal money the state would receive if the law is passed. In addition, they believe that it will decrease deaths on the highways and save the state money that is now spent on medical treatments of the injured.
However, these points do not sit well with those opposed to the measure. Lawmakers and citizens alike believe that overregulation is a slippery slope. Many see the law as one more step toward an overbearing state government.
So where do you stand?
