STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

 

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Seventeen

 

AN ACT relative to allodial title and violations of the oath of office.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Statement of Intent.  The general court finds that upon the end of the American Revolution, all feudal ties with the king of England ended and all lands within the Massachusetts Bay Colony were held in allodium by the sovereigns inhabiting the lands.  Some New Hampshire lands continued to be held in allodium pursuant to  Article 90, Part II of the Constitution for the state of New Hampshire.  

2  Preservation of Allodial Land Rights.  The general court finds that Article 90, Part II of the Constitution for the state of New Hampshire is the supreme authority in preserving the unalienable allodial land rights of all inhabitants.  Whoever knowingly, willingly, and intentionally makes or shows an effort to diminish or extinguish the allodial land rights of the people shall, if a corporate government employee, be found in violation of his or her oath of office and immediately subject to the unappealable penalty of RSA 92:2.

3  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.
