New Hampshire Fact

The federal government recently announced it was adding a bunch more seats to the House of Commons.

This brought to mind an interesting New Hampshire fact.

Did you know New Hampshire's legislature has 424 members, making it the fourth-largest parliamentary body in the world, behind only the U.S. Congress and the Parliaments of Britain and India?

Told you it was interesting.

Yes, but they are essentially unpaid too.
That sounds like a great idea!!

More interesting yet is the fact that New Hampshire legislators are only paid $100 per year, which is apparently enough of a disincentive to keep those weasels out whose primary interest is sucking the public teat dry.
