Bill Gives Communities Say in Construction Found Artifacts

stilesState Sen. Nancy Stiles (R) Hampton is sponsoring legislation that would give communities a say in what happens to the artifacts found during construction projects. House Speaker Terie Norelli (D), Portsmouth is co-sponsoring the bill because she believes it will help preserve precious historical resources.
Stiles and Norelli say the bill will not stop construction, but state Rep. Dan McGuire (R) Epsom , argues it could delay construction or increase costs. McGuire helped kill the same measure last year but doubts he has the votes to do so again now that the House is under Democratic control.
