2 -0 0/ STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Fifteen AN ACT relative to the rights of conscience for medical professionals. Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened: Statement of Intent; Findings. I. The general court of the State of New Hampshire finds that: (a) It is the public policy of New Hampshire to respect and protect the fundamental right of conscience of all individuals who provide health care services.

Such health care services may include, but are not limited to, abortion, artificial birth control, artificial insemination, assisted reproduction, human embryonic stem-cell research, fetal experimentation, human cloning, and sterilization.

6 LBAO -0 0// HB 0-FN - FISCAL NOTE AN ACT relative to the rights of conscience for medical professionals. FISCAL IMPACT: The Judicial Branch, Department of Health and Human Services, and Department of Justice state this bill, as introduced, may increase state expenditures by an indeterminable amount in FY and each year thereafter. There will be no impact on state, county, and local revenue, or county and local expenditures. METHODOLOGY: The Judicial Branch states this bill prohibits discrimination against health care providers who conscientiously object to participating in any health care service. The Branch states this bill provides for civil actions for damages or injunctive relief, or both, for violations of any provision included in this bill. Further, this bill provides for treble damages, costs, and attorney s fees in any such action, with a minimum damage amount of $,000 for each violation. There is no method to determine how many civil actions or damages would be filed in superior court to determine the fiscal impact on expenditures. The Judicial Branch has provided the potential costs in the table below: Judicial Branch* FY FY Complex Civil Case $0 $ Appeals Varies Varies *It should be noted average case cost estimates for FY and FY are based on data that is more than nine years old and does not reflect changes to the courts over that same period of time or the impact these changes may have on processing the various case types. The Department of Health and Human Services states it is impossible to estimate the cost of an adjudicatory proceeding resulting from a violation of this bill. Such costs would include board member per diem and mileage, a courter reporter at roughly $ per proceeding, and investigation and preparation work completed by the Department of Justice. The Department of Justice states the fiscal impact of this bill is indeterminable because it is difficult to estimate how many civil lawsuit cases it would need to defend as a result of this bill.
7 Further, the Department is unable to estimate how many cases would be generated before a professional licensing board resulting in investigations and prosecutions by the Department.
