Sen. David Boutin: Kudos to DRED for taking citizen complaints seriously
Quite frankly, I don't do a lot of horseback riding. So I'm incredibly grateful that one of my constituents, Susan Cassidy, shared her concerns about the new rules with me.
When faced with such an outcry, many a bureaucrat will get defensive or evasive. But both the Parks and Forests Divisions responded admirably, scheduling public hearings across the state and incorporating the public's input into your rules.
Open government is vital to New Hampshire's civic life. The new rules that DRED crafted will not only lead to safer, more accessible state parks, but show other departments how the rulemaking process should work.
Sen. David Boutin, a Hooksett Republican, represents Bow, Candia, Dunbarton, Hooksett and Wards 1, 2 and 12 in Manchester.
