      STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

      In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Seven

      AN ACT relative to repealing the incorporation of the New Hampshire Bar Association.

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

      1 New Hampshire Bar Association; Repeal of Incorporation; Intent. The general court finds that part II, article 83 of the New Hampshire constitution specifically enumerates free and fair competition by the people in all of their commercial endeavors. This right is to be preserved by the duty imposed on the legislature by their action to remove any monopoly or conspiracy which tends to hinder or destroy this right. The general court by this act therefore:

      I. Finds that the New Hampshire Bar Association as established in 1873, chapter CXV, has become a constitutionally prohibited monopoly and conspiracy of power in the practice of law.

      II. Relies on section 6 of the laws of 1873, chapter CXV to repeal the charter and corporate status of the New Hampshire Bar Association, and upon its dissolution, the unlawful accumulation of any and all assets of the monopoly shall escheat to the state.

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