This bill would prohibit detention of a person for violating a shelter-in-place order unless there is probable cause or reasonable suspicion of another offense.
The Department of Safety states determining the fiscal impact of this bill is not possible because it is unknown how often shelter-in-place orders will be issued or how many people, if any, would violate the orders. The Department assumes the bill would have an indeterminable impact on state expenditures and no impact on state revenues.
The New Hampshire Association of Counties indicates this bill will have no fiscal impact on the counties.
The New Hampshire Municipal Association indicates this bill will have no impact on municipal revenues or expenditures.
