This according to Mike Sylvia, prime sponsor of the NH Independence Amendment, although he didn’t put it quite that way. The only part I caught during his discussion was that the bill was filed by a “freshly minted” Democrat and that it forbids people from holding certain state office if they take “any action intended to separate New Hampshire from the united states.”
As such it presumably would not prevent a vote this year, but would in practice forbid future referendums on independence.
I couldn’t find a copy of the proposed bill online, but it appears to be modeled on the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. This is a move that libertarian talk show host Ernie Hanckock appears to have predicted.
Anyone know more? This is his full conversation, the pro-DC bill gets mentioned near the end.
