tions 1 and 2 of this chapter and upon written application may abate

vided by law have proved ineffective. They shall make a written record 
of all abatements made by them and certify the names, addresses and 
precise reasons for all abatements made because of undue hardship and

materials and postage by city or town has been previously approved by 
the tax commission. The expenses incurred or reimbursements authorized 
by the tax commission hereunder and for supplemental bonds required

by enacted into law and entered into by this state with all states legally 
joining therein in the form substantially as follows: 

Article I 

Policy and Purpose. 

Because the desire for the services provided by libraries transcends 
governmental boundaries and can most effectively be satisfied by giving 



90 Chapter 106 [1963 

such services to communities and people regardless of jurisdictional lines, 
it is the policy of the states party to this compact to cooperate and share 
their responsibilities; to authorize cooperation and sharing with respect 
to those types of library facilities and services which can be more econom- 
ically or efficiently developed and maintained on a cooperative basis, 
and to authorize cooperation and sharing among localities, states and 
others in providing joint or cooperative library services in areas where 
the distribution of population or of existing and potential library re- 
sources make the provision of library service on an interstate basis the 
most effective way of providing adequate and efficient service. 

Article II 

Definitions. 

As used in this compact: 

(a) "Public library agency" means any unit or agency of local or 
state government operating or having power to operate a library. 

(b) "Private library agency" means any non-governmental entity 
which operates or assumes a legal obligation to operate a library. 

(c) "Library agreement" means a contract establishing an interstate 
library district pursuant to this compact or providing for the joint or 
cooperative furnishing of library services. 

Article HI 
Interstate Library Districts. 

(a) Any one or more public library agencies in a party state in co- 
operation with any public library agency or agencies in one or more other 
party states may establish and maintain an interstate library district. Sub- 
ject to the provisions of this compact and any other laws of the party states 
which pursuant hereto remain applicable, such district may establish, 
maintain and operate some or all of the library facilities and services for 
the area concerned in accordance with the terms of a library agreement 
therefor. Any private library agency or agencies within an interstate 
library district may cooperate therewith, assume duties, responsibilities 
and obligations thereto, and receive benefits therefrom as provided in any 
library agreement to which such agency or agencies become party. 

(b) Within an interstate library district, and as provided by a li- 
brary agreement, the performance of library functions may be under- 
taken on a joint or cooperative basis or may be undertaken by means of 
one or more arrangements between or among public or private library 
agencies for the extension of library privileges to the use of facilities or 
services operated or rendered by one or more of the individual library 
agencies. 



1963] Chapter 106 91

2. Accept for any of its purposes under this compact any and all 
donations, and grants of money, equipment, supplies, materials, and 
services, (conditional or otherwise), from any state or the United States 
or any subdivision or agency thereof, or interstate agency, or from any 
institution, person, firm or corporation, and receive, utilize and dispose

Findings and Declaration of Necessity. It is hereby found and declared 
that there exist in many communities within this state areas of vacant or 
predominantly vacant land which are substandard or blighted or in the 
process of becoming blighted for the reasons set forth in section 2^b of 
this chapter; that such areas constitute a serious and growing menace to 
the safety, health, morals, and welfare of the communities of this state; 
that such areas are not being used at all or are being used in an unplanned, 
haphazard and piecemeal manner; that such areas impair economic 
values, retard the provision of residential, commercial, industrial, insti- 
tutional and recreational buildings and other improvements, impair the 
tax revenues in these communities and threaten the sources of public 
revenue and the financial stability of these communities, thus preventing 
the sound growth of these communities and the provision of new places 
of residence or employment for their citizens; that the development 
or redevelopment of such areas in these communities in accordance with 
a comprehensive redevelopment plan is necessary to improve economic 
values, return important tax revenues, and provide additional places of 
residence or employment; that the development or redevelopment of 
such areas cannot be achieved by the ordinary operations of private enter- 



118 Chapter 134 [1963 

prise without the aids herein provided; that the development or redevel- 
opment of such areas are public uses and purposes for which public 
monies may be expended and for which the power of eminent domain 
and other governmental powers may be exercised; that the development 
or redevelopment of such areas in accordance with an approved redevel- 
opment plan will stimulate the investment of private capital, the con- 
struction of residential, commercial, industrial, institutional and recrea- 
tional buildings and the provision of new sources of employment and 
will eliminate and prevent the recurrence of the existing substandard and 
blighted and blighting conditions now existing in such areas; and the 
necessity in the public interest for these provisions is hereby declared as 
a matter of legislative determination.

as a part of a redevelopment project in any area in which a redevelopment 
project is determined to be necessary by a housing authority, any work 
or undertaking to develop or redevelop an area of vacant or predom- 
inantly vacant land which is substandard or blighted or in the process of 
becoming blighted (1) because it is unduly costly to develop or redevelop 
such an area through the ordinary operations of private enterprise (a) by 
reason of the existence of ledge, rock, unsuitable soil or other physical 
conditions or because of the necessity for unduly expensive excavation, fill 
or grading, or (b) by reason of the need for unduly expensive foundations, 
retaining walls or unduly expensive measures for waterproofing struc- 
tures or for draining the area or for the prevention of the flooding thereof 
or for the protection of adjacent properties and the water table therein 
or for unduly expensive measures incident to building around or over 
rights-of-way through the area or for otherwise making the area appro- 
priate for sound development, or (2) because obsolete, inappropriate or 
otherwise faulty platting or subdivision, division of the area by rights- 
of-way, diversity of ownership of plots, inadequacy of transportation 
facilities or other utilities, inadequacy of access to the area, tax and special 
assessment delinquencies, a substantial change in business or economic 
conditions or practices, a deterioration of site improvements or facilities, 
an abandonment or cessation of a previous use or of work on improve- 
ments begun but not feasible to complete without the aids provided by 
this chapter or any combination of the foregoing or other conditions in 
any such area wthich are not being remedied by the ordinary operations or 
private enterprise, result in any such area not being used at all or result 
in any such area being used in an unplanned, haphazard, or piecemeal 
manner with building on small parcels or sections of any such area with- 
out any overall plan or design, so that in essence any such area is detri- 
mental to the safety, health, morals, welfare or sound growth of the com- 
munity in which it is situated. The powers granted in this section are in 



1963] Chapter 135 119 

amplification of and in addition to the powers granted in sections 2 and 
2-a of this chapter, with respect to the inclusion of areas of vacant or pre- 
dominantly vacant land in a redevelopment project. Notwithstanding the

be obligated to pay the reasonable cost of processing, hearing and decid- 
ing each such application, as assessed by the board, which cost may be

into consideration the following factors: (a) the convenience, needs and

application in writing and file it in the office of the commissioner, who 
shall forthwith furnish a certified copy thereof to the applicant bank. No

jority of the members of the board. Full power is delegated to the board 
to grant a particular application upon such reasonable conditions, in- 
cluding limitations on the scope of service which may be offered and 
given, consistent with the general purposes of this chapter and sound 
banking principles as the board may determine and set forth in its deci- 
sion. The authority derived from an application which has been granted 
in whole or upon conditions shall lapse and terminate unless business is 
actually commenced thereunder not later than one year after the date 
of the board's decision; provided, however, that the board, for good cause 
shown, may extend the time after which such authority shall lapse. Re- 
hearings of and appeals from decision of the board shall be governed by 
RSA541. 

VI. A bank may discontinue and close a branch office upon the 
affirmative vote of a majority of its board of directors, but such discon- 
tinuance shall not take effect until after at least thirty days' notice thereof 
has been published in some newspaper of general circulation in the com- 
munity affected. 

384-B:3 Bank Holding Company Affiliates. No bank holding com- 
pany shall directly or indirectly acquire ownership or control of any 
voting stock of any bank or national bank, if upon such acquisition (1) 
the bank holding company would have more than twelve affiliates; or

bank holding company and all its affiliates would exceed twenty per cent 
of the dollar volume of total deposits, both time and demand, of all banks 
and national banks in this state as determined by the board on the basis 
of the most recent reports made by such banks to their supervisory au- 
thorities available at the time of acquisition. 

384-B:4 Penalty for Violation. Whoever wilfully violates any pro- 
vision of this chapter or the conditions upon which any application was 



1963] Chapter 189 175 

granted by the board, shall forfeit to the state one hundred dollars a day 
for every day or part thereof during which such wilful violation con- 
tinues. Any such violation shall be forthwith reported by the commis- 
sioner to the attorney general, and the forfeiture may be recovered by 
an information or other appropriate proceeding brought in the superior 
court in the name of the commissioner.

court may issue an injunction restraining such bank holding company 
or bank or its or their officers, directors, agents and employees from fur- 
ther action in violation of any provision of this chapter or the conditions

dency of such proceeding, or permanently, and may make such other

equally apply under this provision. The commissioner may create in the 
state treasury such special funds, the monies in which shall not lapse at 
any time or be transferred to any other fund, except as permitted under 
federal law, as he determines necessary to carry out the purposes of this 
provision, and the state treasurer shall be custodian of such fund under

and employees to carry out the provisions of this subdivision as the gov- 
ernor and council shall authorize. Such assistants and employees shall re-

public education. They shall conduct such studies and make such investi- 
gation, either directly or through their agents, as will apprise them of the 
prizes and money awarded to the holders of winning tickets in similar

protest. In paying any such tax the commission is instructed to assert with 
its protest, in addition to such other reasons as it may deem appropriate, 
the contention of the state of New Hampshire that taxes may not lawfully 
be imposed upon the type of state revenue raising measures for educa- 
tional purposes as is represented by the provisions of this subdivision.

part of this subdivision shall, for any reason, be judged invalid, such

CHAPTER 236. 

AN ACT PROVIDING ADDITIONAL RETIREMENT ALLOWANCES FOR CERTAIN 

RETIRED TEACHERS. 

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

236:1 Teachers' Retirement System. Amend RSA il92 by inserting 
after section 23 (supp) as inserted by 1961, 85:1, the following new sec- 
tion: 192:24 1964 Allowances. Any beneficiary who retired prior to July 
1, 1957 and who is in receipt of a retirement allowance on January 1, 
1964 including any teacher retired under the teachers' retirement system 
as established by chapter 136, Revised Laws, shall beginning with the 
month of January 1964 and monthly thereafter but not beyond the month 
of December 1964 have his allowance increased in the proportion which 
the Consumers Price Index issued by the United States Department of 
Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, for the month of November 1962 bears 
to the corresponding index for the year in which the member retired; 
except that in the case of service beneficiaries, such increased retirement 
allowance shall be at least forty-two dollars for each year of creditable serv- 
ice at retirement not exceeding thirty years, and in the case of disability 
beneficiaries, such increased retirement allowance shall be at least forty 
dollars for each year of creditable service at retirement not exceeding 
thirty years. Provided, however, if any such beneficiary has filed an elec- 
tion in accordance with RSA 13, II, his retirement allowance shall be 
increased for said period only in the proportion which the Consumers 
Price Index issued by the United States Department of Labor, Bureau of 
Labor Statistics, for the month of November 1962 bears to the corre- 
sponding index for the year in which the member retired. In the event 
the retired member is receiving a reduced retirement allowance because 
of having elected an option, such increased retirement allowance shall 
be reduced in the same proportion as the retirement allowance prior to 
optional modification was reduced at retirement. If the beneficiary of a 
retired member who retired prior to July 1, 1957 and elected an option 
providing for a survivor annuity is in receipt of such survivor annuity 
on January 1, 1964, such beneficiary shall be paid beginning with the 



432 Chapter 237 [1963 

month of January 1964 and monthly thereafter but not beyond the month 
of December 1964 an increased retirement allowance which shall be the 
same proportion of the increased retirement allowance the member would 
have been entitled to receive, if any, prior to any optional modification 
had he been living on January 1, 1964 as the survivor annuity bears to 
the full allowance prior to optional modification of such former retired 
member at retirement. When the increased retirement allowance of any 
one beneficiary shall be ascertained under the terms of the before men- 
tioned provisions the difference between said increased retirement allow- 
ance and the retirement allowance said beneficiary is then receiving, as 
of December 31, 1963 shall be multiplied by two and the said sum shall 
be paid to said beneficiary, in twelve monthly installments during the 
period from January 1, 1964 to December 31, 1964. Nothing herein shall 
be construed as affecting the regular retirement allowance of any bene- 
ficiary. The payment of the additional retirement allowances payable 
hereunder shall be contingent on the payment by the state of the addi- 
tional amounts required to meet the current disbursements of such 
additional retirement allowances. 

236:2 Appropriation. In order to provide funds for the payment 
of the supplemental allowances provided under RSA 192:24 as herein- 
before inserted, the sum of seventy-six thousand, three hundred and 
thirty-one dollars is hereby appropriated for the fiscal year ending June 
30, 1964 and the sum of seventy-six thousand, three hundred and thirty- 
one dollars is hereby appropriated for the fiscal year ending June 30, 
1965. The first sum herein mentioned shall be expended by the teachers' 
retirement system for the payment of supplemental benefits for the period 
from January 1, 4964 to June 30, 1964, and the second sum herein men- 
tioned shall be expended by said system for the payment of supplemental 
benefits for the period from July 1, 1964 to December 31, 1964. The gov- 
ernor is authorized to draw his warrant for the sums hereby appropriated 
out of any money in the treasury not otherwise appropriated. 

236:3 Takes Effect. This act shall take eff'ect on January 1, 1964. 
[Approved July 2, 1963.] 
[Effective January 1, 1964.]

rank, inspector, chief clerk, clerk, radio dispatcher, radio engineer or 
operator, patrolman, trooper, detective, investigator, mechanic, elec-

438 Chapter 238 [1963 

238:2 Retirement Fund. Amend RSA 103:7 (supp) as amended by 
1957, 50:2, 189:1 and 1961, 191:1 by striking out said section and insert- 
ing in place thereof the following: 103:7 Assessment on Salaries. The 
retirement and other compensation provided for by this chapter shall be 
paid out of a retirement fund, which shall consist of all moneys collected 
from assessments or appropriations or gifts provided for herein. At the 
beginning of each fiscal year the board shall fix the applicable rate of 
assessment upon the annual salaries of all permanent policemen who ac- 
cept the provisions hereof. Unless and until changed by the board, such 
rate of assessment shall be six and eighty-five one-hundredths per cent 
of each policeman's annual salary, except, that in the case of any police- 
man employed by a city having a population of more than thirty-four 
thousand inhabitants and until the governing body of said city shall 
elect to discontinue its present policy of paying a supplementary retire- 
ment benefit to any permanent policeman employed by the city who 
may thereafter be granted a retirement benefit under the provisions of 
the New Hampshire Policemen's Retirement System, no assessment shall 
be made upon that part of his annual salary in excess of two thousand four 
hundred dollars. The board shall, in such manner as it may prescribe, 
give notice of the rate and amount of assessment of each permanent 
policeman's salary to the treasurer or other disbursing officer of the state, 
city, town, village or precinct where such permanent policeman is em- 
ployed. All assessments under this section shall be payable in equal 
monthly instalments on the last business day of each calendar month. It 
shall be the duty of the treasurer or other disbursing officer of the state, 
city, town, village or precinct, employing permanent policemen, who 
accept the provisions hereof, to withhold from the monthly salary of each 
permanent policeman and to pay the board an amount equal to the 
monthly assessment against such permanent policeman's salary, as before 
provided. All permanent policemen who shall accept the provisions here- 
of by such acceptance agree that the treasurer or other disbursing officer 
of the state, city, town, village or precinct which employs them shall have 
the power to withhold from their monthly salaries the amounts aforesaid. 
Anything in this section to the contrary notwithstanding, any policeman 
who is over thirty-five years of age at the time he accepts the provisions of 
this chapter shall be assessed by the board on the part of his annual salary 
which would have been assessable had he been under age thirty-five on 
the date of such acceptance, at the increased rate determined in accord- 
ance with the following table:

1961, 191:2 by striking out said section and inserting in place thereof the 
following: 103:10 Contributions by State. On account of each police- 
man accepting the provisions hereof, there shall be appropriated annually 
by the state for the purposes of this act a current service contribution of 
three per cent of the annual salary of each such policeman. In addition, 
there is hereby appropriated for the purposes of this act a past service 
contribution, which shall be payable until any deficit on account of past 
service has been liquidated, equal to the sum of one hundred and ninety 
thousand dollars annually, and the governor is hereby authorized to 
draw his warrant for said sum out of any money in the treasury not other- 
wise appropriated. Of the assessments made upon the state on account of 
employees of the state police department, under the provisions of section 
9, eighty-five per cent thereof shall be a charge upon the revenues of the 
department of public safety from motor vehicle registration, and the bal- 
ance shall be a charge upon the general funds of the state and the gov- 
ernor is hereby authorized to draw his warrant for said balance out of 
any money in the treasury not otherwise appropriated. 

238:4 Twenty-five Years Service. Amend RSA 103:12 (supp) as 
amended by 1957, 50:3, 189:2 andil961, 191:3 by striking out said section 
and inserting in place thereof the following: 103:12 Retirement. Any 
permanent policeman who accepts the provisions of this chapter may 
retire from active service after serving as a permanent policeman for a 
period of twenty-five continuous years, after having attained the age of 
fifty years, or after reaching the age of sixty-five regardless of his period 



440 Chapter 238 [1963 

of service as a permanent policeman. All permanent policemen who ac- 
cept the provisions hereof and who have served as permanent policemen 
for twenty-five continuous years shall retire from active service at the age 
of seventy. Any permanent policeman accepting the provisions hereof 
who shall be dismissed from service after having served as a permanent 
policeman for a period of twenty-five continuous years, regardless of his 
then attained age, or after reaching the age of sixty-five regardless of his 
period of service as a permanent policeman, shall be entitled to the bene- 
fits of this chapter. Upon retirement a permanent policeman shall no 
longer be obligated to pay assessments to the retirement fund. The board 
may, if it deems proper, in a case of a break in a policeman's continuous 
service of not more than three years, construe as a period of continuous 
service the total service of such policeman, by adding his service before 
the break to his service after the break. 

238:5 Amount. Amend RSA 103:14 (supp) as amended by 1957, 
50:4 189:3 and 1961, 191:4 by striking out said section and inserting in 
place thereof the following: 103:14 Retirement Benefits. Any perma- 
nent policeman who retires or is dismissed from service as provided in 
section 12 and who shall have complied with all the provisions hereof 
and with the rules and regulations of the board, shall be entitled to re- 
ceive from the retirement fund, for each year during the remainder of 
his life, a sum equal to one-half of his average annual salary for the five 
years in the last ten years next preceding his retirement during which 
his annual salary was the highest, as determined by the board, but in no 
event shall this sum be less than twelve hundred dollars; provided, how- 
ever, that in the case of a policeman employed by a city having a popula- 
tion of more than thirty-four thousand inhabitants, such sum shall be 
equal to one-half of the assessed part of his average annual salary for 
the five years next preceding his retirement; and further provided, that 
if at the time of his retirement he shall have served as a permanent police- 
man for a period of less than twenty-five continuous years, such sum as 
computed above shall be reduced pro rata in the proportion which the 
actual number of completed years of continuous service bears to twenty- 
five. Anything to the contrary notwithstanding, an appropriate adjust- 
ment, as determined by the board under rules uniformly applicable to 
all policemen similarly situated, shall be made in the sum otherwise 
payable to the policeman if at any time subsequent to July 1, 1953 or 
subsequent to the date of his accepting these provisions, if later, the rate 
of assessment upon the assessable part of his annual salary has been less 
than five and three-fourths per cent or if at any time subsequent to July 
1, 1961 or the date of such acceptance, if later, the rate of assessment has 
been less than six and eighty-five one-hundredths per cent of his annual 
salary. Retirement benefits shall be paid in equal monthly instalments on 
the first business day of each calendar month.

238:6 Death or Permanent Disability. Amend RSA 103:15 (supp) 
as amended by 1957, 189:4 and 1961, 191:5 by striking out said section 
and inserting in place thereof the following: 103:15 Compensation in 
Case of. Any permanent policeman accepting the provisions hereof who 
shall have become permanently and totally disabled to perform useful 
service, because of injury received in the actual performance of his duty, 
may be retired by the board, and shall be entitled to the benefits here- 
under and shall receive an annual sum equal to one-half of the assessed 
part of his annual salary at the date of his disability, for the duration of 
such disability, as determined by the board, but in no case shall such pay- 
ment be less than twelve hundred dollars per year. Any permanent po- 
liceman accepting the provisions hereof, who has performed faithful 
service in his department for at least twenty years and who shall become 
permanently and totally incapacitated from performing useful service, 
either mentally or physically, may be retired and shall be entitled to the 
benefits hereunder, and for the duration of his incapacity he shall receive 
an annual sum equal to one-half of his average annual salary for the 
five years in the last ten years next preceding the date of such permanent 
and total incapacity during which his annual salary was the highest, as 
determined by the board, but in no case shall such payment be less than 
twelve hundred dollars per year; provided, that if at the date of his in- 
capacity he shall not have completed twenty-five years of service the sum 
so determined shall be reduced pro rata in the proportion which the 
actual number of completed years of service bears to twenty-five, but in 
no case shall the policeman receive less than twelve hundred dollars per 
year; and further provided, that in the case of a policeman employed by 
a city having a population of more than thirty-four thousand inhabitants, 
such sum shall not exceed one-half of the assessed part of his annual sal- 
ary at retirement. However, an appropriate adjustment, as determined 
by the board under rules uniformly applicable to all policemen similarly 
situated shall be made in the sum otherwise payable to the policeman 
disabled because of injury in the actual performance of duty or incapaci- 
tated from performing useful service, either mentally or physically, if at 
any time subsequent to July 1, 1953, or subsequent to the date of his 
accepting these provisions, if later, the rate of assessment upon the as- 
sessable part of his annual salary has been less than five and three-fourths 
per cent or if at any time subsequent to July 1, 1961 or the date of such 
acceptance, if later, the rate of assessment has been less than six and eighty- 
five one-hundredths per cent of his annual salary. The fact of such dis- 
ability or such incapacity shall be established from time to time as the 
board may require by a certificate of a physician designated by the board. 
In case a permanent policeman, accepting the provisions hereof, shall 
die as the result of injury received in line of duty, his widow, or if none, 
his minor child or children shall receive an annual sum equal to one-half 
the assessed part of the annual salary of such deceased policeman at the 
time of his death, but in no case less than twelve hundred dollars per 



442 Chapter 238 [1963 

year. This sum shall be payable until, in the case of a widow, she dies, 
or remarries, or in the case of a minor child or children, they die or reach 
the age of eighteen years, but if there is no wife, child or children under 
the age of eighteen years, surviving such policeman, then to his totally 
dependent father or mother, or both, or the survivor of them, as the 
board shall determine, during dependency. In case the widow dies with- 
out remarrying and leaves a minor child or children, the payment shall 
continue until such minor child or children die or reach the age of 
eighteen years or marry before reaching the age of eighteen years. Said 
sums shall be paid in equal monthly installments on the first business 
day of each calendar month. Should such deceased policeman leave no 
widow, minor child or children, or totally dependent father or mother, 
his estate or designated beneficiary shall be entitled to receive from the 
retirement fund all payments made thereto by him, without interest. In 
case a permanent policeman, accepting the provisions hereof, shall die 
not as the result of injury received in line of duty, his widow, or, if none, 
his living child or child or children under age eighteen shall receive, in 
addition to the amount payable under section 16 hereof, a lump sum 
equal to three thousand six hundred dollars, except in the case of a police- 
man employed by a city having a population of more than thirty-four 
thousand inhabitants, in which case the lump sum shall not exceed the 
amount of the assessed part of his annual salary at his death. 

238:7 Policemen. Amend RSA 103:^16 by striking out said section 
and inserting in place thereof the following: 103:16 Resignation, Dis- 
missal and Reinstatement. Any permanent policeman accepting the pro- 
visions hereof who shall resign or be dismissed from service before be- 
coming eligible for retirement and the estate or designated beneficiary 
of any such permanent policeman who may die before becoming eligible 
for retirement, not as the result of an injury received in line of duty, shall 
be entitled to receive from the retirement fund all payments made there- 
to by him, without interest, and minus a fixed charge as the board may 
prescribe. Upon resignation or dismissal from service a permanent po- 
liceman shall no longer be obligated to pay assessments to the retirement 
fund. Any permanent policeman, resigned or dismissed from service as 
aforesaid may, if he thereafter re-enters service as a permanent policeman, 
be reinstated to the benefits hereunder upon payment to the board of all 
assessments which might have been assessed against him from the date 
of his original acceptance hereof to his resignation or dismissal and upon 
reinstatement he shall thereafter make the payments to the retirement 
fund prescribed by the board under section 7.

who shall die after having retired under the provisions of section 14 or 



1963] Chapter 239 443

any excess of the total payments made thereto by him, without interest, 
over the aggregate retirement allowance payments received by him prior 
to his death. In addition, a lump sum equal to three thousand six hundred 
dollars shall be payable, except in the case of a former policeman who 
was employed by a city having a population of more than thirty-four 
thousand inhabitants, in which case the lump sum shall not exceed the 
amount of the assessed part of his annual salary at retirement. 

238:9 Appropriation. For the purpose of paying the state's share 
for the policemen's retirement system for the fiscal year ending June 30, 
1964, there is hereby appropriated the sum of ninety-four thousand, four 
hundred and fifty-seven dollars, and a like sum is hereby appropriated 
for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1965. The sums hereby appropriated 
shall be a charge upon the funds of the state as provided in RSA 103:10

thereof the following: 102:15 Retirement. Any permanent fireman who 
retires or is dismissed from active service as provided in section 13, and 
■^vho shall have complied with all provisions of this chapter and with the 
rules and regulations of the board, shall be entitled to receive from said 
board for each year during the remainder of his natural life retirement 
benefits based upon his average final salary, as defined hereinafter, at the

The "average final salary" shall mean the highest average annual 
earnable compensation of a member during any five consecutive years of 
service prior to the date of retirement or dismissal, as determined by the 
board. The retirement benefits shall be paid to the retired member on 
the first business day of each calendar month in as nearly equal monthly 
installments as possible. No permanent fireman who has retired under 
the provisions of this chapter shall be paid for any service performed in 
the fire department during the time of his retirement unless it be for 
specific duty during a period of public emergency. The board shall have 
the right to further increase the actuarial table of rates of retirement 
benefits accruing to members retiring on account of age, between the 
ages of 55 and 65 inclusive, based upon periodic actuarial valuations of 
the retirement system. 

245:2 Benefits. Amend RSA 102:17 (supp) as amended by il957, 15:4 
by striking out said section and inserting in place thereof the following: 
102:17 In Case of Death or Disability. A permanent fireman accepting 
the provisions of this chapter, who shall have become permanently dis- 
abled from fire duty, because of injury received in line of duty, shall re- 
ceive an annual sum equal to two-thirds his annual salary as defined in 
section 15, and in case of call, volunteer, or substitute firemen, who be- 
come permanently and totally disabled because of injury received in line 
of fire duty, an annual sum not to exceed one thousand two hundred fifty 
dollars per year. Firemen shall be acknowledged as performing their duty 
when they are going to, returning from or working at a fire or other pub- 
lic emergency; when performing all work within the scope of employment 
of the fireman under the expressed or implied authority of a superior offi- 
cer; and in such other cases as the board may from time to time decide to 
be for the public interest. The fact of permanent disability may be estab- 
lished by the certificate of physician designated by the board. In case a 
fireman accepting the provisions hereof shall die as the result of injury 
received in line of duty, his widow or if none, his minor child or children 
shall receive an annual sum equal to the compensation allowed for dis- 
ability for either permanent or call firemen, as the case may be, until in 
case of a widow, she dies or remarries, or, in case of a minor child or chil- 
dren, the board in its discretion shall pay such sum as a joint and survivor 
annuity, until such child dies or attains the age of eighteen years, and in 
case there is no wife, child or children under age eighteen surviving such 
member, then to his totally dependent father or mother, or both, and the 



1963] Chapter 245 449 

survivor of either one of them, as the board in its discretion shall de- 
termine, during dependency, and until remarriage of either. In case a 
retired member, whose retirement was the result of disability received in 
line of duty, dies while on retirement from the result of injuries received 
in line of duty, the payment of his retirement benefits shall continue to 
his widow until she dies or remarries, or children until they reach the 
age of eighteen years. 

245:3 Change in Amounts. Amend RSA 102:18 (supp) as amended 
by 1955, 112:2 and 1957, 15:5 by striking out said section and inserting 
in place thereof the following: 102:18 Ordinary Disability; Medical Ex- 
amination. Upon the application to the retirement board of a member in 
active service, any member who has fifteen or more years of creditable 
service may be retired on an ordinary disability retirement allowance 
consisting of an annual sum equal to two-thirds his average final salary as 
defined in section 15; provided that, the physician or physicians desig- 
nated by the board certify that he is mentally or physically incapacitated 
for the further performance of duty, that such incapacity is likely to be 
permanent, and that he should be retired. Once each year during the 
first years following the retirement of a member on a total and permanent 
disability, or ordinary disability retirement, and once in every three- 
year period thereafter, the board may require any disability beneficiary, 
who has not attained age sixty-five, to undergo a medical examination by 
a physician or physicians designated by the board. If any disability bene- 
ficiary, who has not attained age sixty-five, refuses to submit to such 
medical examination, his retirement may be discontinued by the board, 
until his withdrawal of such refusal, and if his refusal continues for more 
than a year all his rights in and to his pension may be revoked by the 
board. If the physician or physicians designated by the board report and 
certify that the disability beneficiary is again able to engage in fire duty, 
his retirement allowance shall be discontinued. On his reinstatement to 
active service his rate of assessment shall be the same as assessed against 
him previous to the date of his disability, and his period of disability 
shall be considered as part of continuous service. If the retirement board 
finds that any member retired on an ordinary disability allowance under 
this section is engaged in a gainful occupation paying more than the 
difference between his annual retirement allowance and his final annual 
salary prior to retirement, then his disability shall be deemed to have 
diminished and his retirement allowance shall be reduced to an amount 
which, together with the amount then being earned by him, shall equal 
his final annual salary at retirement, as stated above. If his earnings from 
such gainful occupation are later changed, his retirement allowance may 
be further modified by the retirement board; provided, however, that his 
retirement allowance shall at no time exceed the original grant nor an 
amount which when added to the amount being earned by him equals his 
final annual salary at retirement, as stated above. The provisions of this 



450 Chapter 246 [1963 

section governing adjustments or discontinuance of a member's disability 
retirement allowance shall apply proportionally in like manner to any 
benefits which may thereafter become payable to the beneficiary named 
under any option elected under the provisions of section 16. 

245:4 Appropriation. Notwithstanding any provisions of RSA 102 
to the contrary, for the purpose of paying the state's share for the firemen's 
retirement system, in addition to any other monies appropriated, there 
is hereby appropriated for the fiscal year ending June 30, il964 the sum of 
forty thousand dollars, and a like sum for the fiscal year ending June 30, 
1965. The sums hereby appropriated shall be a charge upon the general 
funds of the state. 

245:5 Takes Effect. This act shall take effect as of July 1, 1963.

CHAPTER 246. 

AN ACT ADOPTING THE BUS TAXATION PRORATION AND RECIPROCITY 

AGREEMENT. 

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

246:1 New Chapter. Amend RSA by inserting after chapter 260 the 
following new chapter: 

Chapter 260-A 
Bus Taxation Proration and Reciprocity Agreement 

260-A: 1 Agreement. The bus taxation proration agreement is here- 
by enacted into law and entered into with all jurisdictions legally joining 
therein in the form substantially as follows: 

ARTICLE I. Purposes and Principles 

I. Purposes of Agreement. It is the purpose of this agreement to set 
up a system whereby any contracting state may permit owners of fleets of 
buses operating in two or more states to prorate the registration of the 
buses in such fleets in each state in which the fleets operate on the basis of 
the proportion of miles operated within such state to total fleet miles, as 
defined herein, 

II. Principle of Proration of Registration. It is hereby declared that 
in making this agreement the contracting states adhere to the principle 
that each state should have the freedom to develop the kind of highway 



1963] Chapter 246 451 

user tax structure that it determines to be most appropriate to itself, that 
the method of taxation of interstate buses should not be a determining 
factor in developing its user tax structure, and that annual taxes or other 
taxes of the fixed fee type upon buses which are not imposed on a basis 
that reflects the amount of highway use should be apportioned among 
the states, within the limits of practicality, on the basis of vehicle miles 
traveled within each of the states. 

ARTICLE II. Definitions 

(a) State. State shall include the states of the United States, the Dis- 
trict of Columbia, the territories of the United States, the Provinces of 
Canada, and the states, territories and federal district of Mexico. 

(b) Contracting State. Contracting state shall mean a state which is 
a party to this agreement. 

(c) Administrator, Administrator shall mean the official or agency

joint venture, association, corporation, estate, trust, business trust, re- 
ceiver, syndicate, or any other group or combination acting as a unit. 

(e) Base State. Base state shall mean the state from or in which the 
bus is most frequently dispatched, garaged, serviced, maintained, op- 
erated, or otherwise controlled, or also in the case of a fleet bus the state 
to which it is allocated for registration under statutory requirements. In 
order that this section may not be used for the purpose of evasion of 
registration fees, the administrators of the contracting states may make 
the final decision as to the proper base state, in accordance with Article 
III (h) hereof, to prevent or avoid such evasion. 

(f) Bus. Bus shall mean any motor vehicle of a bus type engaged in 
the interstate transportation of passengers and subject to the jurisdiction 
of the Interstate Commerce Commission, or any agency successor thereto, 
or one or more state regulatory agencies concerned with the regulation of 
passenger transport. 

(g) Fleet. As to each contracting state, fleet shall include only those 
buses which actually travel a portion of their total mileage in such state. A 
fleet must include three or more buses. 

(h) Registration. Registration shall mean the registration of a bus 
and the payment of annual fees and taxes as set forth in or pursuant to 
the laws of the respective contracting states. 

(i) Proration of Registration. Proration of registration shall mean 
registration of fleets of buses in accordance with Article IV of this agree- 
ment. 



452 Chapter 246 [1963

to the extent provided in this agreement, exempts a bus from registration 
and registration fees. 

ARTICLE III. General Provisions 

(a) Effect on Other Agreements, Arrangements, and Understand- 
ings. On and after its effective date, this agreement shall supersede any 
reciprocal or other agreement, arrangement, or understanding between 
any two or more of the contracting states covering, in whole or in part, 
any of the matters covered by this agreement; but this agreement shall 
not affect any reciprocal or other agreement, arrangement, or understand- 
ing between a contracting state and a state or states not a party to this 
agreement. 

(b) Applicability to Exempt Vehicles. This agreement shall not re- 
quire registration in a contracting state of any vehicles which are in whole 
or part exempt from registration under the laws or regulations of such 
state without respect to this agreement. 

(c) Inapplicability to Caravaned Vehicle. The benefits and privi- 
leges of this agreement shall not be extended to a vehicle operated on its 
own wheels, or in tow of a motor vehicle, transported for the purpose of 
selling or offering the same for sale to or by any agent, dealer, purchaser, 
or prospective purchaser. 

(d) Other Fees and Taxes. This agreement does not waive any fees 
or taxes charged or levied by any state in connection with the ownership 
or operation of vehicles other than registration fees as defined herein. All 
other fees and taxes shall be paid to each state in accordance with the 
laws thereof. 

(e) Statutory Vehicle Regulations. This agreement shall not author- 
ize the operation of a vehicle in any contracting state contrary to the 
laws or regulations thereof, except those pertaining to registration and 
payment of fees; and with respect to such laws or regulations, only to the 
extent provided in this agreement. 

(f) Violations. Each contracting state reserves the right to withdraw, 
by order of the administrator thereof, all or any part of the benefits or 
privileges granted pursuant to this agreement from the owner of any 
vehicle or fleet of vehicles operated in violation of any provision of this 
agreement. The administrator shall immediately give notice of any such 
violation and withdrawal of any such benefits or privileges to the admin- 
istrator of each other contracting state in which vehicles of such owner 
are operated. 

(g) Cooperation. The administrator of each of the contracting states 
shall cooperate with the administrators of the others and each contract- 



1963] Chapter 246 453 

ing state hereby agrees to furnish such aid and assistance to each other 
within its statutory authority as will aid in the proper enforcement of 
this agreement. 

(h) Interpretation. In any dispute between or among contracting 
states arising under this agreement, the final decision regarding interpre- 
tation of questions at issue relating to this agreement shall be reached by 
joint action of the contracting states, acting through the administrator 
thereof, and shall upon determination be placed in writing. 

(i) Effect of Headings. Article and section heading contained herein 
shall not be deemed to govern, limit, modify, or in any manner affect the 
scope, meaning, or intent of the provisions of any article or part hereof. 

(j) Entry into Force. This agreement shall enter into force and be- 
come binding between and among the contracting states when enacted 
or otherwise entered into by any two states. Thereafter, it shall enter into 
force and become binding with respect to any state when enacted into 
law by such state. If the statutes of any state so authorize or provide, such 
state may become party to this agreement upon the execution thereof by 
an executive or administrative official thereof acting on behalf of and for 
such state. 

ARTICLE IV. Proration of Registration 

(a) Applicability. Any owner of a fleet may register the buses of said 
fleet in any contracting state by paying to said state total registration fees 
in an amount equal to that obtained by applying the proportion of in- 
state fleet miles divided by the total fleet miles, to the total fees which 
would otherwise be required for regular registration of each and all of 
such vehicles in such contracting state. 

All fleet pro-rata registration fees shall be based upon the mileage 
proportions of the fleet during the period of twelve months ending on 
August thirty-first next preceding the commencement of the registration 
year for which registration is sought: Except, that mileage proportions for 
a fleet not operated during such period in the state where application for 
registration is made will be determined by the administrator upon the 
sworn application of the applicant showing the operations during such 
period in other states and the estimated operations during the registra- 
tion year for which registration is sought, in the state to which applica- 
tion is being made; or if no operations were conducted during such 
period a full statement of the proposed method of operation. 

If any buses operate in two or more states which permit proration of 
registration on the basis of a fleet of buses consisting of a lesser number 
of vehicles than provided in Article II (g), such fleet may be prorated as 
to registration in such states, in which event the buses in such fleet shall 
not be required to register in any other contracting states if each such 



454 Chapter 246 [1963 

vehicle is registered in some contracting state (except to the extent it is 
exempt from registration as provided in Article III (b)). 

If the administrator of any state determines, based on his method of 
the operation thereof, that the inclusion of a bus or buses as a part of a 
fleet would adversely affect the proper fleet fee which should be paid to 
his state, having due regard for fairness and equity, he may refuse to 
permit any or all of such buses to be included in his state as a part of such 
fleet. 

(b) Total Fleet Miles. Total fleet miles, with respect to each con- 
tracting state, shall mean the total miles operated by the fleet (1) in such 
state, (2) in all other contracting states, (3) in other states having propor- 
ional registration provisions, (4) in states with which such contracting 
state has reciprocity, and (5) in such other states as the administrator de- 
termines should be included under the circumstances in order to protect 
or promote the interest of his state; except that in states having laws re- 
quiring proration on the basis of a different determination of total fleet 
miles, total fleet miles shall be determined on such basis. 

(c) Leased Vehicles. If a bus is operated by a person other than the 
owner as a part of a fleet which is subject to the provisions of this article, 
then the operator of such fleet shall be deemed to be the owner of said 
bus for the purposes of this article. 

(d) Extent of Privileges. Upon the registration of a fleet in a con- 
tracting state pursuant to this article, each bus in the fleet may be oper- 
ated in both interstate and intrastate operations in such state (except as 
provided in Article III (e)). 

(e) Application for Proration. The application for proration of 
registration shall be made in each contracting state upon substantially the 
application forms and supplements authorized by joint action of the ad- 
ministrators of the contracting states. 

(f) Issuance of Identification. Upon registration of a fleet, the state 
which is the base state of a particular bus of the fleet, shall issue the re- 
quired license plates and registration card for such bus and each con- 
tracting state in which the fleet of which such bus is a part, operates shall 
issue a special identification identifying such bus as a part of a fleet which 
has fully complied with the registration requirements of such state. The 
required license plates, registration cards and identification shall be ap- 
propriately displayed in the manner required by or pursuant to the laws 
of each respective state. 

(o-) Additions to Fleet. If any bus is added to a prorated fleet after the 
filino- of the original application, the owner shall file a supplemental ap- 
plication. The owner shall register such bus in each contracting state in 
like manner as provided for buses listed in an original application and the 
reo-istration fee payable shall be determined on the mileage proportion 



1963] Chapter 246 455 

used to determine the registration fees payable for buses registered under 
the original application. 

(h) Withdrawals from Fleet. If any bus is withdrawn from a pro- 
rated fleet during the period for which it is registered or identified, the 
owner shall notify the administrator of each state in which it is registered 
or identified of such withdrawal and shall return the plates, and registra- 
tion card or identification as may be required by or pursuant to the laws 
of the respective states. 

(i) Audits. The administrator of each contracting state shall, within 
the statutory authority of such administrator, make any information ob- 
tained upon an audit of records of any applicant for proration of regis- 
tration available to the administrators of the other contracting states. 

(j) Errors in Registration. If it is determined by the administrator of 
a contracting state, as a result of such audits or otherwise, that an im- 
proper fee has been paid his state, or errors in registration found, the ad- 
ministrator may require the fleet owner to make the necessary corrections 
in the registration of his fleet and payment of fees. 

ARTICLE V. Reciprocity 

(a) Grant of Reciprocity. Each of the contracting states grants re- 
ciprocity as provided in this article. 

(b) Applicability. The provisions of this agreement with respect to 
reciprocity shall apply only to a bus properly registered in the base state 
of the bus, which state must be a contracting state. 

(c) Non-applicability to Fleet Buses. The reciprocity granted pur- 
suant to this article shall not apply to a bus which is entitled to be regis- 
tered or identified as part of a prorated fleet. 

(d) Extent of Reciprocity. The reciprocity granted pursuant to this 
article shall permit the interstate operation of a bus and intrastate opera- 
tion which is incidental to a trip of such bus involving interstate opera- 
tion. 

(e) Other Agreements. Nothing in this agreement shall be con- 
strued to prohibit any of the contracting states from entering into sepa- 
rate agreements with each other for the granting of temporary permits 
for the intrastate operation of vehicles registered in the other state; nor 
to prevent any of the contracting states from entering into agreements to 
grant reciprocity for intrastate operation within any zone or zones agreed 
upon by the states. 

ARTICLE VI. Withdrawal or Revocation 

Any contracting state may withdraw from this agreement upon thirty 
days written notice to each other contracting state, which notice shall be 



456 Chapter 246 [1963 

given only after the repeal of this agreement by the legislature of such 
state, if adoption was by legislative act, or after renunciation by the ap- 
propriate administrative official of such contracting state if the laws 
thereof empower him so to renounce. 

ARTICLE VII. Construction and Severability 
This compact shall be liberally construed so as to effectuate the pur- 
poses thereof. The provisions of this compact shall be severable and if any 
phrase, clause, sentence or provision of this compact is declared to be 
contrary to the constitution of any state or of the United States or the ap- 
plicability thereof to any government, agency, person or circumstance is 
held invalid, the validity of the remainder of this compact and the ap- 
plicability thereof to any government, agency, person or circumstance 
shall not be affected thereby. If this compact shall be held contrary to 
the constitution of any state participating herein, the compact shall re- 
main in full force and effect as to the remaining party states and in full 
force and effect as to the state affected as to all severable matters. 

260-A:2 Terms Defined. As used in the agreement, with reference 
to this state, the term "administrator" shall mean the director of the di- 
vision of motor vehicles of the department of safety. 

260-A:3 Powers of Administrator. The director of the division of 
motor vehicles, as administrator of the agreement for the state of New 
Hampshire, shall have the power to make such exemptions from the 
coverage of the agreement as may be appropriate and to make such 
changes in methods for the reporting of any information required to be 
furnished to this state pursuant to the agreement as, in his judgment, 
shall be suitable; provided that any such exemptions or changes shall not 
be contrary to the purposes set forth in Article I of the agreement and 
shall be made in order to permit the continuance of uniformity of prac- 
tice among the contracting states with respect to buses. Any such ex- 
emption or change shall be made by rule or regulation and shall not be 
effective unless made by the same procedure required for other rules and 
resrulations of his division. 

All such rules and regulations shall be published at least once in a 
newspaper of general circulation in the state and in such other circulars 
as the director may in his discretion deem desirable to fairly apprise the 
public of the same. 

260-A:4 Withdrawal. The governor is hereby authorized to deter- 
mine that the state of New Hampshire should withdraw, at any time, 
from the agreement provided for herein and he shall give notice as 
provided in article VI of the agreement of such xvithdrawal or revocation.

BY INTERSTATE BUSES. 

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

248:1 New Chapter. Amend RSA by inserting after chapter 265 the 
following new chapter: 

Chapter 265-A 

Taxation of Motor Fuels Consumed 

by Interstate Buses 

265-A: 1 Compact. The compact on taxation of motor fuel consumed 
by interstate buses is hereby enacted into law and entered into by the 
state of New Hampshire with all jurisdictions legally joining therein in 
the form substantially as follows: 

ARTICLE I. Purposes 

The purposes of this agreement are to: 

(a) Avoid multiple taxation of motor fuels consumed by interstate 
buses and to assure each state of its fair share of motor fuel taxes. 



458 Chapter 248 [1963 

(b) Establish and facilitate the administration of a criterion of 
motor fuel taxation for interstate buses which is reasonably related to 
the use of highway and related facilities and services in each of the party 
states. 

(c) Encourage the availability of a maximum number of buses for 
intrastate service by removing motor fuel taxation as a deterrent in the 
routing of interstate buses. 

ARTICLE II. Definitions 

(a) State. State shall include the states of the United States, the Dis- 
trict of Columbia, the territories of the United States, the Provinces of 
Canada, and the states, territories and federal district of Mexico. 

(b) Contracting State. Contracting state shall mean a state which is 
a party to this agreement. 

(c) Administrator. Administrator shall mean the official or agency 
of a state administering the motor fuel taxes involved. 

(d) Person. Person shall include any individual, firm, co-partner- 
ship, joint venture, association, corporation, estate, trust, business trust, 
receiver, syndicate or any other group or combination acting as a unit. 

(e) Bus. Bus shall mean any motor vehicle of a bus type engaged in 
the interstate transportation of passengers and subject to the jurisdiction 
of the interstate commerce commission, or any agency successor thereto, 
or one or more state regulatory agencies concerned with the regulation of 
passenger transport. 

(f) Gallon. Gallon shall mean the liquid measure containing 231 
cubic inches. 

ARTICLE III. Governing Principle 

For purposes of this compact, the primary principle for the imposi- 
tion of motor fuel taxes shall be consumption of such fuel within the 
state. Motor fuel consumed by buses shall be taxed on the existing basis, 
as it may be from time to time, and under the procedures for collection 
of such taxes by each party state, except that to the extent that this com- 
pact makes provision therefor, or for any matter connected therewith, 
such provision shall govern. 

ARTICLE IV. How Fuel Consumed to be Ascertained 

The amount of fuel used in the operation of any bus within this state 
shall be conclusively presumed to be the number of miles operated by 
such bus within the state divided by the average mileage per gallon ob- 
tained by the bus during the tax period in all operations, whether within 
or without the party state. Any owner or operator of two or more buses 



1963] Chapter 248 459 

shall calculate average mileage within the meaning of this article by com- 
puting single average figures covering all buses owned or operated by him. 

ARTICLE V. Imposition of Tax 

Every owner or operator of buses shall pay to the party state taxes 
equivalent to the amount of tax per gallon multiplied by the number 
of gallons used in its operations in the party state. 

ARTICLE VI. Reports 

On or before the last business day of the month following the month 
being reported upon, each bus owner or operator subject to the payment 
of fuel taxes pursuant to this compact shall make such reports of its op- 
erations as the state administrator of motor fuel taxes may require and 
shall furnish the state administrator in each other party state wherein his 
buses operate a copy of such report. 

ARTICLE VII. Credit for Payment of Fuel Taxes 

Each bus owner or operator shall be entitled to a credit equivalent 
to the amount of tax per gallon on all motor fuel purchased by such 
operator within the party state for use in operations either within or 
without the party state, and upon which the motor fuel tax imposed by 
the laws of such party state has been paid. 

ARTICLE VIII. Additional Tax or Refund 

If the bus owner or operator's monthly report shows a debit balance 
after taking credit pursuant to Article VII, a remittance in such net 
amount due shall be made with the report. If the report shows a credit 
balance, after taking credit as herein provided, a refund in such net 
amount as has been overpaid shall be made by the party state to such 
owner or operator. 

ARTICLE IX. Entry into Force and Withdrawal 

This compact shall enter into force when enacted into law by any 
two states. Thereafter it shall enter into force and become binding upon 
any state subsequently joining when such state has enacted the compact 
into law. Withdrawal from the compact shall be by act of the legislature 
of a party state, but shall not take effect until one year after the governor 
of the withdrawing state has notified the governor of each other party 
state, in writing, of the withdrawal. 

ARTICLE X. Construction and Severability 

This compact shall be liberally construed so as to effectuate the pur- 
poses thereof. The provisions of this compact shall be severable and if 
any phrase clause, sentence or provision of this compact is declared to 
be contrary to the constitution of any state or of the United States or the 



460 Chapter 249 [1963 

applicability thereof to any government, agency, person or circumstance 
is held invalid, the validity of the remainder of this compact and the

263-B: 1 Compact Enacted. The vehicle equipment safety compact 
is hereby enacted into law and entered into with all other jurisdictions 
legally joining therein in the form substantially as follows. 

Findings and Purposes 

(a) The party states find that: 

(1) Accidents and deaths on their streets and highways present a 
very serious human and economic problem with a major deleterious 
effect on the public welfare. 

(2) There is a vital need for the development of greater interjuris- 
dictional cooperation to achieve the necessary uniformity in the laws, 
rules, regulations and codes relating to vehicle equipment, and to accom- 
plish this by such means as will minimize the time between the develop- 
ment of demonstrably and scientifically sound safety features and their 
incorporation into vehicles. 

(b) The purposes of this compact are to: 

(1) Promote uniformity in regulation of and standards for equip- 
ment. 

(2) Secure uniformity of law and administrative practice in vehicu- 
lar regulation and related safety standards to permit incorporation of 
desirable equipment changes in vehicles in the interest of greater traffic 
safety. 

(3) To provide means for the encouragement and utilization of 
research which will facilitate the achievement of the foregoing purposes, 
with due regard for the findings set forth in paragraph (a) of this section. 

(c) It is the intent of this compact to emphasize performance re- 
quirements and not to determine the specific detail of engineering in 
the manufacture of vehicles or equipment except to the extent necessary 
for the meeting of such performance requirements. 



472 Chapter 252 [1963 

263-B:2 Definitions. As used in this compact:

as the "Vehicle Equipment Safety Commission" hereinafter called the 
commission. The commission shall be composed of one commissioner 
from each party state who shall be appointed, serve and be subject to 
removal in accordance with the laws of the state which he represents. If 
authorized by the laws of his party state, a commissioner may provide for 
the discharge of his duties and the performance of his functions on the 
commission, either for the duration of his membership or for any lesser 
period of time, by an alternate. No such alternate shall be entitled to 
serve unless notification of his identity and appointment shall have been 
given to the commission in such form as the commission may require.

are present. 

(c) The commission shall have a seal. 

(d) The commission shall elect annually, from among its members,

point an executive director and fix his duties and compensation. Such 
executive director shall serve at the pleasure of the commission, and to- 
gether with the treasurer shall be bonded in such amount as the com-

tractor shall have a pecuniary or other incompatible interest in the manu- 
facture, sale or distribution of motor vehicles or vehicular equipment 
or in any facility or enterprise employed by the commission or on its 
behalf for testing, conduct of investigations or research. In addition to 
any penalty for violation of such rules and regulations as may be ap- 
plicable under the laws of the violator's jurisdiction of residence, employ- 
ment or business, any violation of a commission rule or regulation 
adopted pursuant to this section shall require the immediate discharge 
of any violating employee and the immediate vacating of membership, 
or relinquishing of status as a member on the commission by any com- 
missioner or alternate. In the case of a contractor, any violation of any 
such rule or regulation shall make any contract of the violator with the

nor to prevent such a contractor from receiving remuneration or profit 
from the use of such facilities.

The commission may establish such advisory and technical com- 
mittees as it may deem necessary, membership on which may include

until one year after the executive head of the withdrawing state has given 
notice in writing of the withdrawal to the executive heads of all other 
party states. No withdrawal shall affect any liability already incurred by 
or chargeable to a party state prior to the time of such withdrawal. 

263-B: 10 Construction and Severability. 

This compact shall be liberally construed so as to effectuate the pur- 
poses thereof. The provisions of this compact shall be severable and if 
any phrase, clause, sentence or provision of this compact is declared to 
be contrary to the constitution of any state or of the United States or the 
applicability thereof to any government, agency, person, or circumstance 
is held invalid, the validity of the remainder of this compact and the 
applicability thereof to any government, agency, person or circumstance 
shall not be affected thereby. If this compact shall be held contrary to

Any school district pursuant to an article in the warrant for any annual 
or special meeting may vote to create a cooperative school district plan- 
ning committee consisting of three qualified voters of whom at least one 
shall be a member of the school board. The members of the committee 
shall be elected at the meeting at which the committee is created, unless 



484 Chapter 258 [1963 

the district determines that they shall be appointed by the moderator. 
The members of the committee shall serve without pay for a term ending

the committee, if the committee is created at an annual meeting, or (2) 
at the first annual meeting of the district next following the expiration 
of three years from the date of the creation of the committee, if the com- 
mittee is created at a special meeting, or (3) upon the final adjournment 
of the organization meeting of any cooperative school district of which 
the district becomes a part. If the term of the committee ends at an an- 
nual meeting of the district, the district may create a successor cooperative 
school district planning committee pursuant to the foregoing provisions. 
Vacancies on the committee shall be filled by the moderator for the bal- 
ance of the unexpired term. The district may appropriate money to meet 
the expenses of the committee at the meeting at which it is created or at 
any subsequent district meeting notwithstanding the provisions of RSA 
32 or RSA 197:3, and such expenses may include the cost of publication 
and distribution of reports. Cooperative school district planning commit- 
tees from any two or more school districts may join together to form a 
cooperative school district planning board which shall organize by the 
election of a chairman and a clerk-treasurer. The planning board may 
thereafter admit to membership planning committees from other school 
districts, but the members of a planning committee shall not be members 
of more than one planning board at any one time. A cooperative school 
district planning board shall act by a majority vote of its total member- 
ship. 

II. It shall be the duty of the cooperative school district planning 
board to study the advisability of establishing a cooperative school dis- 
trict in accordance with the standards set forth in section 2 of this chap- 
ter, its organization, operation and control, and the advisability of con- 
structing, maintaining and operating a school or schools to serve the 
needs of such district; to estimate the construction and operating costs 
thereof; to investigate the methods of financing such school or schools, 
and any other matters pertaining to the organization and operation of a 
cooperative school district; and to submit a report or reports of its find- 
ings and recommendations to the several school districts. 

III. A cooperative school district planning board may recommend 
that a cooperative school district composed of all the school districts 
represented by its membership or any specified combination of such 
school districts be established. The planning board shall prepare pro- 
posed articles of agreement for the proposed cooperative school district, 
which shall be signed by at least a majority of the membership of the 
planning board, which set forth the following:

district meeting to elect at least one member by use of a distinctive ballot 
for each such district.

(e) The method of apportioning the operating expenses of the co- 
operative school district among the several pre-existing districts and the 
time and manner of payment of such shares. 

(f) The indebtedness of any pre-existing district which the coopera- 
tive school district is to assume. 

(g) The method of apportioning the capital expenses of the co- 
operative school district among the several pre-existing districts, which 
need not be the same as the method for apportioning operating expenses, 
and the time and manner of payment of such shares. Capital expenses 
shall include the costs of acquiring land and buildings for school pur- 
poses, including property owned by a pre-existing district; the construc- 
tion, furnishing and equipping of school buildings and facilities; and the 
payment of the principal and interest of any indebtedness which is in- 
curred to pay for the same or whch is assumed by the cooperative school 
district. 

(h) The manner in which the state aid referred to in section 15, or 
any other available state aid, shall be allocated, unless it is otherwise ex- 
pressly provided by the law making such aid available. 

(i) The method by which the articles of agreement may be amended 
with the approval of the board; except that no amendment may permit 
secession of territory and the provisions adopted under either subpara- 
graph (e) or (g) above may not be amended prior to the expiration of five 
years from the date of the first annual meeting of the cooperative school 
district, or thereafter, within five years following the adoption of any 
amendment to such provisions respectively; but such provisions may be 
amended at any time in order to permit the annexation of a school dis- 
trict or an increase in the number of grades for which the cooperative 
school district shall be responsible. 



486 Chapter 258 [1963 

(j) The date of operating responsibility of the proposed cooperative 
school district, and a proposed program for the assumption of operating 
responsibility for education by the proposed cooperative school district 
and any school construction; which the cooperative school district shall 
have the power to vary by vote as circumstances may require. 

(k) Any other matters, not incompatible with law, which the co- 
operative school district planning board may consider appropriate to in- 
clude in the articles of agreement. 

IV. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 9 of this chapter, the 
articles of agreement, or any amendment thereto, may provide for the 
donation, the sale or the transfer under a lease-purchase agreement of any 
school property owned by a pre-existing district to the cooperative school 
district, except that no lease-purchase agreement shall extend for a period 
of more than twenty years. The adoption of the articles of agreement or 
any such amendment shall be sufficient authorization for the appro- 
priate school boards to carry out the transaction. Obligations incurred by 
the cooperative school district in connection with any lease-purchase 
agreement hereunder shall not be deemed indebtedness of the cooperative 
school district for the purposes of ascertaining its borrowing capacity. 

V. Before final approval of a proposed articles of agreement by the 
planning board, it shall hold at least one public hearing thereon within 
the proposed cooperative school district and shall give such notice thereof 
as it may determine to be reasonable. An executed copy of the proposed 
articles of agreement shall be submitted by the planning board to the 
board, and, when the board finds that the same are in accord with the 
standards set forth in section 2 of this chapter, it shall approve the same 
and cause them to be submitted to the school boards of the several pre- 
existing districts for acceptance by the districts as provided in the follow- 
ing paragraph. Upon such submission, the board shall cause the approved 
articles of agreement to be published once in some newspaper generally 
circulated within the proposed cooperative school district at the expense 
of the state. The planning board may amend a proposed articles of agree- 
ment to conform to recommendations of the board after holding a further 
public hearing thereon with notice as above provided. 

VI. Upon the receipt of written notice of the board's approval of the 
articles of agreement, the school board of each pre-existing district which 
is to be included in the cooperative school district shall cause the articles 
of ao-reement to be filed with the clerk of such pre-existing district and 
submitted to the voters of the district as soon as may reasonably be pos- 
sible at an annual meeting or at a special meeting called for the purpose, 
the votino- to be by ballot with the use of the check-list, after reasonable 
opportunity for debate in open meeting. The duty to call such meeting 
for such purpose may be enforced by the superior court in an equity 



1963] Chapter 258 487 

proceeding commenced by any voter or taxpayer of such school district. 
The article in the warrant for each district meeting and the question on 
the ballot to be used at the meeting shall be in substantially the following 
form: 

"Shall the school district accept the provisions of RSA 195 (as 
amended) providing for the establishment of a cooperative school district, 

together Avith the school districts of and etc., 

in accordance with the provisions of the proposed articles of agreement 
filed with the school district clerk?" 

Yes n No n 

If a majority of the voters present and voting in each district shall 
vote in the affirmative, the clerk of each pre-existing district shall forth- 
with send to the board a certified copy of the warrant, certificate of post- 
ing, evidence of publication if required, and minutes of the meeting in his 
district. If the board finds that a majority of the voters present and voting 
in each pre-existing district meeting have voted in favor of the establish- 
ment of the cooperative school district, it shall issue its certificate to that 
effect; and such certificate shall be conclusive evidence of the lawful or- 
ganization and formation of the cooperative school district as of the date 
of its issuance. 

VII. If any pre-existing district fails to vote in the affirmative on the 
proposed articles of agreement within ninety days after its school board 
receives notice of approval thereof by the board, such district shall be 
deemed to have rejected the same. If the proposed articles of agreement 
fail of adoption as herein required, they may be resubmitted to all or a 
different combination of the several pre-existing districts either in their 
original form or as amended by the cooperative school district planning 
board, with the approval of the board, such articles if amended to be 
published once by the board as provided in the case of initial articles of 
agreement in paragraph V, and shall in such case be again acted upon by 
each district, as provided herein; but, prior to the approval thereof by the 
board for resubmission, the planning board shall hold one further hear- 
ing thereon as provided in paragraph V in the case of initial articles of 
agreement. 

VIII. The board shall fix a time and place for a special meeting of the 
qualified voters within the cooperative school district for the purpose of 
organization and shall prepare the warrant for the meeting after con- 
sultation with the cooperative school district planning board. The war- 
rant shall include articles for the election of a school board and other 
necessary officers, the appropriation of money for the operation of the 
district, and any other items of business that require action at the organiza- 
tion meeting. The warrant shall be under the hand of the commissioner, 
in the name of the board, and the commissioner shall cause attested copies 



488 Chapter 258 [1963 

of same to be posted at least fourteen days before the meeting in three 
public places in each pre-existing district and a copy of the same to be 
published at least one week before the date of the meeting in some news- 
paper generally circulated within the cooperative school district. The ex- 
pense of posting and publishing the warrant shall be paid by the state. 
The agent or agents of the commissioner who post and cause publica- 
tion of the warrant shall make a return thereof, which, with the warrant, 
shall be made a part of the district records. The organization meeting 
shall have the same power and authority as an annual meeting with refer- 
ence to the raising or appropriating of money. 

IX. The organization meeting of a cooperative school district shall 
be called to order by the chairman of the cooperative school district plan- 
ning board, or by the clerk-treasurer thereof, who shall serve as temporary 
chairman for the first order of business which shall be the election of a 
moderator and of a temporary clerk, by ballot, who shall be qualified 
voters of the district. From and after the issuance of the certificate of 
formation by the board to the date of operating responsibility of the co- 
operative school district, such district shall have all the authority and 
powers of a regular school district for the purposes of incurring indebted- 
ness, for the construction of school facilities and for such other functions 
as are necessary to obtain proper facilities for a complete program of edu- 
cation. When necessary in such interim, the school board of the coopera- 
tive school district is authorized to prepare a budget and call a special 
meeting of the voters of the district, which meeting shall have the same 
authority as an annual meeting, for the purpose of adopting the budget, 
making necessary appropriations, and borrowing money. Whenever the 
organization meeting is held on or before April 20 in any calendar year, 
no annual meeting need be held in such calendar year. Sums of money 
raised and appropriated at the organization meeting or any interim meet- 
ing prior to the first annual meeting shall be forthwith certified to the state 
tax commission and the state department of education upon blanks pre- 
scribed and provided by the tax commission for the purpose, together 
with a certificate of estimated revenues, so far as known, and such other 
information as the tax commission may require. The tax commission shall 
examine such certificates and delete any appropriations which appear 
not made in accordance with the law, and adjust any sum which may be 
used as a set off against the amount appropriated when it appears to the 
commission such adjustment is in the best public interest. The tax com- 
mission shall certify to the state department of education the total amount 
of taxes to be raised for said cooperative school district and the state de- 
partment of education shall determine the proportional share of said 
taxes to be borne by each pre-existing school district and notify the tax 
commission of its determination. Upon certification by the tax commis- 
sion the selectmen of each town shall seasonably assess the taxes as pro- 
vided by law. The selectmen shall pay over to the treasurer of the co- 



1963] Chapter 258 489 

operative district such portion of the sums so raised as may reasonably be 
required according to a schedule of payments needed for the year as pre- 
pared by the treasurer and approved by the cooperative school board, but 
no such payment shall be greater in percentage to the total sum to be 
raised by one local district than that of any other local district comprising 
such cooperative school district. 

X. The provisions of paragraphs I and 11 of section 4 and of sec- 
tions 4-a, 7 and 8 of this chapter shall not apply to cooperative school 
districts organized under this section, but all other sections of this chap- 
ter shall apply to such districts, except as otherwise expressly provided in 
this section or in any articles of agreement adopted pursuant hereto. 

258:2 Functions. Amend RSA 195:4 (supp) as amended by 1961, 
44:1 and 206:3 by striking out said section and inserting in place thereof 
the following: 

195:4 Powers. I. During the period from the date of the vote of 
the organization of any cooperative school district organized prior to 
July 1, il963, to the date of operating responsibility such cooperative 
school district shall have all the authority and privileges of a regular 
school district for bonding purposes, for the construction of school facili- 
ties and for all other necessary functions to obtain proper facilities for 
the provision of a complete program of education. When necessary the 
school board of the cooperative school district is authorized to prepare 
a budget and call a special meeting of the voters of the district for the 
purpose of adopting the budget and to determine the financial appropria- 
tions. Such meeting shall have the same authority as an annual meeting 
for these purposes. 

II. Election of Officers. Every cooperative school district organized 
prior to July 1, 1963, may continue to elect the members of its cooperative 
school board in the same manner and for the same terms as were provided 
by law immediately prior to the effective date of this act. Every such 
cooperative school district at any annual or special meeting, pursuant to 
an article in the warrant, may adopt a by-law to specify the number, com- 
position, method of selection, which shall include the use of the non- 
partisan ballot system under RSA 59, and terms of office of its cooperative 
school board, except that its cooperative school board shall consist of an 
odd number of members, not less than five nor more than fifteen, who 
shall be elected for terms not exceeding three years, each pre-existing 
district voting separately at the cooperative district meeting to elect at 
least one member by use of a distinctive ballot for each such district. The 
question of adopting a by-law specifying such details shall be considered 
at such meeting by the voters of each pre-existing district voting separately 
by distinctive ballot with the use of the checklist after reasonable oppor- 
tunity for debate in open meeting. If a majority of the voters of each 
pre-existing district present and voting shall vote to adopt such by-law, it 



490 Chapter 258 [1963 

shall take effect pursuant to its terms. Thereafter such by-law vote may 
be amended only (a) at an annual meeting of the district by a majority 
vote of the voters of each pre-existing district voting separately by dis- 
tinctive ballot with the use of the checklist after reasonable opportunity 
for debate or (b) at an annual or special meeting of the district in con- 
nection with the annexation of additional territory or an increase in the 
number of grades for which the cooperative school district is to be re- 
sponsible. 

III. Checklists. At the meetings held in the pre-existing districts 
for the purpose of accepting the articles of agreement, or any agreement 
of annexation, and at the organization meeting of the cooperative school 
district the checklists for each pre-existing district shall be used. The 
school board of any pre-existing district which does not have a checklist 
shall make, post and correct a list of the legal voters in the district for 
use at such meetings as supervisors are required to do in regard to the 
list of voters in their towns. Thereafter the cooperative school board shall 
make, post and correct a list of the legal voters of the cooperative school 
district acting as supervisors are required to do, except that such list shall 
indicate with respect to each voter the pre-existing district in which he 
resides. Any two members of the cooperative school board shall constitute 
a quorum at sessions for the correction of the checklist. Notwithstanding 
the foregoing provisions whenever each of the pre-existing school dis- 
tricts is coextensive with the to^vn in -^vhich it is located the cooperative 
school district may, at an annual cooperative school district meeting, 
under an article in the warrant for such meeting, vote that the super- 
visors of each town, acting as the supervisors of the cooperative school 
district, shall make, post and correct in each pre-existing district a check- 
list of the voters in each pre-existing district and shall certify to the same 
acting as supervisors of the cooperative school district. At each annual 
meeting for the election of officers of the cooperative district the checklists 
prepared by the supervisors in each pre-existing district in accordance 
with the provisions of this paragraph shall be used and the town super- 
visors from each pre-existing district shall attend said annual meeting. 
The voters of the cooperative district shall be those whose names appear 
on the checklists as provided by this paragraph. The supervisors shall be 
paid such compensation as the district may provide. 

IV. For purposes of state-wide supervision a cooperative school dis- 
trict shall be a school district. 

V. The members of the cooperative school board shall serve with 
or without remuneration as the district shall determine, but they shall 
be paid their necessary expenses while upon official business. 

258:3 Definitions. Amend paragraph VIII of RSA 195:1, by strik- 
ing out said paragraph and inserting in place thereof the following: VIII. 
"Date of operating responsibility" shall mean the date or dates set in 



1963] Chapter 258 491 

the resolution adopted at the organization meeting or in the articles of 
agreement adopted by the several school districts on which the coopera- 
tive school district shall take over operating control of those schools 
within such district which it was organized to operate. Wherever the 
words "establishment" or "date of establishment" appear in this chapter, 
they shall be given a meaning synonymous with "date of operating con- 
trol." 

258:4 Standards. Amend RSA 195:2 by striking out said section 
and inserting in place thereof the following: 195:2 Standards. I. It is 
the purpose of this chapter to increase educational opportunities within 
the state by encouraging the formation of cooperative school districts 
which will each be a natural social and economic region with an adequate 
minimum taxable valuation and a number of pupils sufficient to permit 
the efficient use of school facilities within the district and to provide im- 
proved instruction. The board may formulate and adopt additional 
standards consistent with this purpose and with these standards; and 
the board shall approve articles of agreement for a proposed cooperative 
school district, or agreements for the enlargement of a cooperative school 
district, only after determining that the formation or enlargement of the 
district will be in accord with such standards and the purposes set forth 
herein. Safeguards shall be adopted against the isolation of school dis- 
tricts which it might become impractical to annex to any cooperative 
school district at a later time. 

II. Geographical Plan. The board is authorized and directed to 
prepare and publish a plan subdividing the territory of the state into 
suggested cooperative school districts which meet the standards formu- 
lated under the preceding paragraph. This plan shall be reasonably com- 
patible with the areas of the several supervisory unions. From time to 
time thereafter the board may modify such plan. 

III. Advisory Powers of Board. The board may prepare recom- 
mended forms of articles of agreement and agreements for annexation for 
cooperative school districts and may furnish its advisory services to co- 
operative school district planning boards or school boards who have such 
matters under consideration. 

258:5 School Board; Powers and Duties. Amend the first unnum- 
bered paragraph of RSA 195:5 by striking out said paragraph and insert- 
ing in place thereof the following: The cooperative school board elected 
at the organization meeting shall organize and take office at the close 
of such meeting and proceed to assume its responsibilities and duties 
with respect to the administration and planning of the new cooperative 
school district; provided, however, that the cooperative board shall have 
no administrative authority as to the schools in the pre-existing districts 
until the date of operating responsibility. Thereafter all cooperative 
school district officers shall assume office at the close of the annual meet- 



492 Chapter 258 [1963 

ing. The cooperative school board shall have the same powers and duties 
as school boards in school districts as prescribed by RSA 189. Except as 
provided in this chapter, all the provisions of this chapter or of any other 
general law relating to or affecting school districts in the state shall apply 
to cooperative school districts organized as herein provided. 

258:6 Cooperative School Districts. Amend RSA 195:6 (supp) as 
amended by 1955, 334:5; 1957, 126:1 and 2; 1959, 209:1 and 2, by strik- 
ing out said section and inserting in place thereof the following: 195:6 
Powers and Duties of Cooperative School Districts. I. Each cooperative 
school district shall be a body corporate and politic with power to sue 
and be sued, to acquire, hold and dispose of real and personal property 
for the use of schools therein, and to make necessary contracts in relation 
thereto, and have and possess all the powers and be subject to all the lia- 
bilities conferred and imposed upon school districts under the provisions 
of RSA 494. Whenever a cooperative school district assumes all the func- 
tions of a pre-existing district, it shall also assume the outstanding in- 
debtedness and obligations thereof as of the date of operating responsi- 
bility; and on such date of operating responsibility the pre-existing 
districts shall be deemed dissolved, and any and all assets, property and 
records thereof not previously disposed of shall vest in the cooperative 
school district, unless otherwise provided in the articles of agreement 
or agreement of annexation. 

II. Each cooperative school district shall have the power to borrow 
money and issue its notes or bonds in conformity with the provisions of 
RSA 33, provided, however, indebtedness of a cooperative district organ- 
ized to provide both elementary and secondary schools may be incurred 
to an amount not to exceed ten per cent of its assessed valuation as last 
equalized by the state tax commission. 

III. Whenever only a part of the educational facilities of a local 
school district are incorporated into a cooperative school district, such 
local district shall continue in existence and function as previously. The 
cooperative school district shall assume only those outstanding debts and 
obligations of the local school district which pertain to the property ac- 
quired by the cooperative school district for use by the cooperative school 
district. In such case no cooperative school district shall for elementary 
school purposes incur debt to an amount exceeding five per cent, and for 
secondary school purposes, if organized for grades nine through twelve, 
to an amount exceeding five per cent, and for secondary school purposes 
if organized for grades seven through twelve, to an amount not exceeding 
six per cent of the total assessed valuation of such district as last equalized 
by the tax commission. No cooperative school district described in this 
paragraph shall incur indebtedness if it subjects the taxable property of 
any school district forming a part thereof to debt, when added to the 
debt of such school district, of more than ten per cent of the total assessed 
value of such taxable property as last equalized by the tax commission. 



1963] Chapter 258 493 

258:7 Apportionment of Costs. Amend RSA 195:8 (supp) as amend- 
ed by 1955. 334:10, 1959, 195:2 and 1961, 206:5, by striking out said sec- 
tion and inserting in place thereof the following: 195:8 Five- Year Period 
Reconsideration. After the expiration of the first five-year period meas- 
ured from the date of the first annual meeting and after the expiration 
of each subsequent five-year period measured from the date of the last 
change thereto, the basis for the apportionment of all such costs may 
be subject to review, pursuant to an article for that purpose duly inserted 
in the warrant for a district meeting, and the cooperative school district 
may then by majority vote elect to apportion all such costs by the adop- 
tion of either formula I, II or III, as defined in section 7 of this chapter. 
Such apportionment may be reviewed in the same manner at any time 
in order to permit annexation of a school district or an increase in the 
number of grades for which the district shall be responsible. 

258:8 Appraisal of Property. Amend RSA 195:9 (supp) as amended 
by 1955, 334:11, by inserting before the word "whenever" in the first line 
the words, Unless otherwise provided in the articles of agreement, so that 
said section as amended shall read as follows: 195:9 Taking Over of 
Property. Unless otherwise provided in the articles of agreement, when- 
ever a cooperative school district is formed, the property belonging to 
the pre-existing districts to be used by the cooperative district shall be 
separately appraised by the state tax commission. At the next annual 
assessment a tax equivalent to that amount shall be levied upon the sev- 
eral districts comprising the cooperative school district in the proportion 
that the equalized valuation of each bears to the equalized valuation of 
the whole, and there shall be remitted to the taxpayers of each pre-exist- 
ing district the appraised value of its property. Whenever the board de- 
cides the foregoing adjustment will work a hardship on any one or all of 
the pre-existing districts, it may of its own motion, or upon petition of 
any ten residents of a pre-existing district provide that such adjustment 
be made over a period of not exceeding twenty years. 

258:9 Finances. Amend RSA 195:12 by striking out said section 
and inserting in place thereof the following: 195:12 Budget. At least 
thirty days prior to the annual meeting, the cooperative school board 
shall prepare a budget for the ensuing year, after holding at least one 
public hearing upon a preliminary budget at some convenient place in 
the district, of which at least seven days' notice shall have been given, and 
said budget, subsequent to its final approval by such board, shall be posted 
in a public place in each pre-existing district and given such other pub- 
lication as the cooperative school board may determine. The provisions 
of RSA 32 shall not apply to a cooperative school district, except in a case 
where said district is composed of pre-existing districts wholly within 
one town, which town has adopted said budget law, or except as provided 
in section il2-a, II of this chapter, but in such excepted cases, this section 
shall not apply. 



494 Chapter 258 [1963 

258:10 Committee Established. Amend paragraph I of RSA 195:12-a 
(supp) as inserted by 1961, 206:6, by striking out said paragraph and 
inserting in place thereof the following: I. Budget Committee. Any 
cooperative school district at an annual meeting under a proper article 
in the warrant may vote to establish a cooperative school budget com- 
mittee and may rescind such action in like manner. Such committee 
shall be the same size as the school board of the cooperative school dis- 
trict and the representation on said committee, term of office and mode 
of election of its members, shall be determined in the same manner as 
for the cooperative school board, with each pre-existing district being en- 
titled to at least one member on such committee. 

10-a Copies of Budget. Amend RSA 195:12-a (supp) as inserted 
by 1961, 206:6, by adding at the end thereof the following new paragraph: 
III. Copies. Such committee shall seasonably provide the cooperative 
school board with a sufficient number of copies of the budget prepared 
by it, and the same shall be posted with each copy of the warrant in the 
manner provided by section 13 of this chapter. 

258:11 Taxation. Amend RSA 135:14 (supp) as amended by 1955, 
334:3 by striking out said section and inserting in place thereof the fol- 
lowing: 

195:14 Certification of District Taxes. The cooperative school board 
shall annually on or before July twenty-fifth certify to the tax commis- 
sion and the state department of education upon blanks prescribed and 
provided by the tax commission for the purpose, a certificate of the 
several appropriations voted by the district and estimated revenues, so 
far as known, and such other information as the tax commission may re- 
quire. The tax commission shall examine such certificates and delete 
any appropriations which appear not made in accordance with the law, 
and adjust any sum which may be used as a set off against the amount 
appropriated when it appears to the commission such adjustment is in 
the best public interest. The tax commission shall certify to the state 
department of education the total amount of taxes to be raised for the 
support of said cooperative school district and the state department of 
education shall determine the proportional share of said taxes to be borne 
by each pre-existing school district and notify the tax commission of its 
determination. Upon certification by the tax commission, the selectmen 
of each town shall seasonably assess the taxes as provided by law. The 
selectmen shall pay over to the treasurer of the cooperative district such 
portions of the sums so raised as may reasonably be required according 
to a schedule of payments needed for the year as prepared by the treasurer 
and approved by the cooperative school board, but no such payment shall 
be greater in percentage to the total sum to be raised by one local district 
than that of any other local district comprising such cooperative school 
district. 



1963] Chapter 258 495 

Whenever a cooperative school district assumes any obligations of a 
pre-existing district the cooperative school board shall also certify to the 
tax commission and the state department of education the amount to 
be raised by taxation to pay such obligations as they become due and the 
state department of education shall determine the proportional part 
thereof to be borne by each pre-existing district and notify the tax com- 
mission thereof. The tax commission shall thereupon add the amount 
thereof to the other sums to be raised by said pre-existing districts and 
include the same in computing the rate per cent of taxation for each pre- 
existing district, unless the articles of agreement or agreement of an- 
nexation provide otherwise. 

Whenever a cooperative school district has assumed the obligations 
of a pre-existing district the amount of each payment of principal and 
interest on all obligations which have been thus assumed shall be annu- 
ally assessed and collected without any vote or other act of approval 
whatsoever. 

258:12 New Territory. Amend RSA 195:16 by striking out said 
section and inserting in place thereof the following: 195:16 Annexation 
of Territory. One or more school districts may be annexed to a coopera- 
tive school district, whether heretofore or hereafter organized, in the 
following manner: 

I. The school board of any school district situated in proximity to 
an existing cooperative school district may petition the cooperative school 
board to meet with it to study jointly the advisability and the terms of 
annexing such school district to the cooperative school district. It shall 
thereupon be the duty of the cooperative school board to meet with the 
other school board as requested and engage in such joint study. After 
such joint study the two school boards may recommend that such school 
district be annexed to the cooperative school district, and if they so rec- 
ommend, they shall submit a proposed agreement of annexation in writ- 
ing signed by a majority of each board setting forth in detail: (a) the date 
of operating responsibility, when the cooperative district shall assume 
control of operation of schools within the annexed district, upon which 
date the annexed school district shall cease to exist; (b) the number, com- 
position, method of selection, which may include the use of the non- 
partisan ballot system under RSA 59, and terms of office of the cooperative 
school board, except that the cooperative school board shall consist of an 
shall be elected for terms not exceeding three years, each pre-existing 
odd number of members, not less than five nor more than fifteen, who 
district voting separately at the cooperative school district meeting to 
elect at least one member; (c) the specific school properties and other 
assets in the annexed district to be acquired by the cooperative school 
district and the disposition of those not acquired including the records; 
(d) the initial location of the school or schools which will serve the an- 
nexed district; (e) the indebtedness of the annexed district which the 



496 Chapter 258 [1963 

cooperative school district is to assume; (f) the method of apportioning 
the capital outlay costs and operational costs under section 7 of this chap- 
ter or under the articles of agreement of the cooperative school district, 
which method may be different from the formula previously adopted by 
the cooperative school district notwithstanding the provisions of section 
8 of this chapter or its articles of agreement; (g) the manner in which 
state aid referred to in section 15 of this chapter or any other available 
state aid shall be allocated, unless otherwise expressly provided by law; 
(h) provisions similar to those outlined in paragraph IV, section 18 of 
this chapter, if desirable; and (i) any other matters, not incompatible with 
law, which the two school boards may consider appropriate to include 
in the agreement, 

II. An executed copy of such proposed agreement of annexation 
shall be submitted to the board; and if it finds that the proposed annexa- 
tion would be in accord with the standards set forth in section 2 of this 
chapter and approves the agreement, it shall cause the agreement to be 
submitted to the cooperative school district and to the school district to 
be annexed for acceptance by each. 

III. The cooperative school board and the school board of the 
school district to be anexed, upon receipt of written notice of such 
approval by the board, shall cause the agreement to be filed with their 
respective district clerks and submitted to the voters of their respective 
districts as soon as may reasonably be possible at duly called meetings, 
the voting to be by ballot with the use of the checklist, after reasonable 
opportunity for debate in open meeting. The article in the warrant and 
the question on the ballot shall be in substantially the following form: 

"Shall the proposed agreement of annexation on file with 

the district clerk, joining school district to 

cooperative school district be approved?" 

Yes D No n 

If a majority of the voters present and voting at such meetings in each 
district shall vote in the affirmative, the clerk of each district shall forth- 
with send to the board a certified copy of the warrant, certificate of post- 
ing, evidence of publication, if required, and minutes of the meeting. 
If the board finds that a majority of the voters present and voting in each 
district meeting have voted in favor of the annexation, it shall issue its 
certificate to that effect, and such certificate shall be conclusive evidence 
of the lawful annexation of such pre-existing school district to the coop- 
erative school district. An agreement of annexation so adopted shall be 
deemed to amend the inconsistent provisions in any pre-existing articles 
of agreement of the cooperative school district. 

IV. Except for operating responsibility with respect to the schools 
in the annexed district, which authority shall commence on the date 



1963] Chapter 258 497 

specified in the agreement of annexation, the cooperative school district 
and its school board shall have full powers and duties in the enlarged 
district from the date of the certificate of annexation. 

V. The failure of the voters to approve the annexation of a school 
district shall not prevent the commencement of annexation proceedings 
under this section with respect to such district thereafter. 

258:13 Increase in Powers. Amend RSA 195 by inserting after sec- 
tion 16 the following new sections: 195:16-a Increase in Grades. Any 

cooperative school district whether organized heretofore or hereafter, 
which provides only elementary schools or only secondary schools may 
amend its articles of agreement or otherwise enlarge its powers to pro- 
vide both elementary and secondary school education. If the cooperative 
school district was organized prior to July 1, 1963, it shall proceed by 
agreement of annexation with the school districts concerned as provided 
in section 16. If the cooperative district was organized pursuant to section 
18, it shall proceed by amendment of its articles of agreement. The pro- 
posed agreement of annexation or the proposed amended articles of agree- 
ment shall be submitted to the board for its approval. If the board finds 
that the same are in accord with the standards set forth in section 2 of 
this chapter, it shall approve the same and notify the cooperative school 
board of its approval. The proposed agreement of annexation or amended 
articles of agreement shall thereafter be filed with the district clerk and 
submitted to the voters of the cooperative school district at an annual 
or special district meeting. The question shall be considered at such meet- 
ing by the voters of each pre-existing district voting separately by ballot 
with the use of the checklist after reasonable opportunity for debate in 
open meeting and the question on the ballot Shall be in substantially the 
following form: 

"Shall cooperative school district adopt 

the agreement of annexation (or amend its articles of agreement) 
to provide both elementary and secondary schools within the dis- 
trict, in accordance with the written instrument on file with the 
district clerk?" 

Yes n No n 

If a majority of the voters of each pre-existing district present and 
voting shall vote in the affirmative, the clerk of the cooperative school 
district shall forthwith send to the board a certified copy of the warrant, 
certificate of posting, evidence of publication, if necessary, and minutes 
of the meeting. If the board finds that a majority of the voters voting as 
aforesaid have voted in favor of increasing the grades for which the co- 
operative school district is to be responsible, it shall issue its certificate 
to that effect; and such certificate shall be conclusive evidence of the law- 
ful amendment of the district's articles of agreement or enlargement of 



498 Chapter 258 [1963 

its power by agreement of annexation, notwithstanding any contrary 
provisions contained in such articles or otherwise. The cooperative school 
board shall assume operating responsibility for the newly included school 
grades as of the date specified in the amended articles or agreement of 
annexation. 

195:16-b Power of Eminent Domain. Whenever a cooperative school 
district cannot acquire by purchase a good title to any real estate or in- 
terest therein needed by it for its purposes either because of the unwill- 
ingness of the owner to sell at a reasonable price or his inability to convey 
a good title or for other reason, the cooperative school district may apply 
by petition to the superior court for the county in which such real estate 
or interest therein is located to acquire such real estate or interest therein 
in the name of such district and to have assessed the damages occasioned 
by the taking. Thereafter the procedure shall follow that prescribed in 
RSA 481:10, paragraphs I, II, III and V. 

195:16-0 Powers of Superior Court as to Pre-existing Districts. If 

there shall arise any occasion which shall require the doing of any act or 
thing by or in behalf of a pre-existing district which has ceased to exist 
by reason of its inclusion in a cooperative school district, the superior 
court shall have the power, upon application of three registered voters 
residing in the territory of the pre-existing school district, to appoint an 
agent who, subject to the approval of the superior court, shall have the 
power on behalf of and in the name of the pre-existing school district to 
do any act or thing that may be just under the circumstances. 

258:14 Repeal and Effect Thereof. RSA 195:3 (supp) as amended 
by 1955, 334:7 and 1961, 206:1 is hereby repealed. Nothing herein con-

ization of all cooperative school districts completed prior to the effective

sibility in the future. The director may take action as required in this 
section upon receiving proper evidence of any such conviction of any 
person in another state. Notice of suspension and of the requirement of 
such surrender shall be sent by the director to such operator not less than 
ten days prior to the effective date of suspension.

license and registration, or non-resident's operating privileges, the same 
way may be allowed by the department, in its discretion, for six months 
from the date of such consent and thereafter until such consent is re- 
voked in writing, notwithstanding default in the payment of such agree- 
ment. In the event that agreement debtor fails to pay any installment as

Chapter 375-A 

Carriage of Household Goods for Hire by 
Motor Vehicle. 

375-A: 1 Definitions. As used in this chapter the following terms 
shall have the following meanings: 

"Household goods carrier" shall mean a carrier who transports for 
hire by motor vehicle, either common or contract, personal effects and 



1963] Chapter 264 505 

property used or to be used in a dwelling when a part of the equipment 
or supply of such dwelling; furniture, fixtures, equipment and the prop- 
erty of stores, offices, museums, institutions, hospitals, or other establish- 
ments when a part of the stock, equipment, or supply of such stores, 
offices, museums, institutions, hospitals, or other establishments; and 
articles, including objects of art, displays and exhibits, which because of 
their unusual nature or value require specialized handling and equip- 
ment usually employed in moving household goods, and as may be de- 
fined by the commission, for hire between points in this State. The term 
shall not include one who transports his own goods for the purpose of 
sale, delivery or in the furtherance of a trade or business other than 
transportation. 

"Commission" shall mean public utilities commission. 

375-A:2 Certificate Required. No household goods carrier, as de- 
fined herein, shall engage in the business of transporting household 
goods, as defined by the commission, between points in this state, unless 
he holds a certificate issued by the commission authorizing such opera- 
tions; provided, however, that if he or his predecessor in interest, was 
engaged in bona fide operations as a common or contract carrier pursuant 
to RSA 375, engaged in the business of transporting household goods 
over regular or irregular routes on January 1, 1963, or within the terri- 
tory for which application is made, and has so operated since that time, 
the commission shall issue such certificate without requiring further proof 
that the public convenience and necessity will be served by such opera- 
tion, and without further proceedings, if application for such certificate 
is made to the commission in accordance with the provisions of this 
chapter on or before August 1, il963. Otherwise the application for such 
certificate shall be in accordance with the procedure provided for in 
section 3 of this chapter, and such certificate shall be issued or denied 
accordingly. Pending action on any such application the continuance of 
such operation shall be lawful. 

375-A:3 Issuance. A certificate shall be issued to any qualified ap- 
plicant therefor, authorizing the whole or any part of the operations cov- 
ered by the application, if it is found that the applicant is fit, willing and 
able properly to perform the service proposed and to conform to the pro- 
visions of this chapter and the requirements, rules and regulations issued 
by the commission thereunder, and that the proposed service, to the 
extent to be authorized by the certificate, is or will be required by the 
present or future public convenience and necessity; otherwise such ap- 
plication shall be denied. 

375-A:4 Terms and Conditions. Each certificate issued under sec- 
tions 2 or 3 shall specify the service to be rendered and the territory 
within ^vhich the carrier is authorized to operate. The commission may 
impose upon the exercise of the privileges granted by the certificate, at 



506 Chapter 264 [1963 

the time of its issuance or from time to time thereafter, such reasonable 
terms, conditions and limitations as the public convenience and necessity 
may require, provided, however, that no terms, conditions, or limitations 
shall restrict the right of the carrier to add to his or its equipment and 
facilities over the routes, between the termini or within the territory 
specified in the certificate, as the development of the business and the 
demands of the public shall require. 

375-A:5 Applications for Certificates. Application for certificates 
required in sections 2 and 3 shall be made in writing to the commission, 
verified under oath, accompanied by the proper fee, shall be in such 
form and shall contain such information, as the commission shall, by regu- 
lation, require. Any person, not included within the provisions of sections 
2 or 3, who is engaged in transportation of household goods between 
points in this state by motor vehicle when this chapter takes effect may 
continue such operation until September 1, 1963, without a certificate 
and, if application for such certificate is made to the commission by said 
date, the carrier may, under such regulations as the commission may pre- 
scribe, continue such operation until otherwise ordered by the com- 
mission. 

375-A:6 Suspension, Change and Revocation of certificates. Cer- 
tificates issued under the provisions of this chapter authorizing operations 
as a household goods carrier shall be effective from the date specified 
therein and shall remain in effect until suspended, revoked or terminated 
as herein provided. The commission may, after notice and hearing, upon 
application or upon its own initiative amend, suspend, or revoke any 
such certificate, in whole or in part, for wilful failure to comply with any 
provision of this chapter or with any lawful order, rule or regulation of 
the commission promulgated thereunder or with any term, condition or 
limitation of such certificate. 

375-A:7 Transfer of Certificates. No certificate, nor any rights there- 
under shall be transferred without the approval of the commission. 

375-A:8 Security for the Protection of Property. No certificate issued 
to a carrier under the provisions of this chapter shall remain in effect 
unless such carrier shall file with the commission and keep in force a 
certificate of insurance in such form and in such reasonable amount as 
the commission may require, to adequately provide for the reasonable 
protection of the owner or owners of the property transported. 

375-A:9 Rates and Charges. Every household goods carrier by motor 
vehicle shall file with the commission and shall print and keep open to 
public inspection, schedules showing the rates and charges for the trans- 
portation to be rendered, within such time and in such form and with 
such detail as the commission may prescribe. Unless the commission 
otherwise orders, no change shall be made in any such rate or charge 



1963] Chapter 264 507 

which shall have been filed or published in compliance with this section, 
except after thirty days' notice to the commission and such notice to the 
public as the commission shall direct. 

375-A:10 Discrimination Prohibited. It shall be unlawful for any 
household goods carrier by motor vehicle engaged in transportation be- 
tween points in this state to make, give, or cause any undue or unreason- 
able preference of advantage to any particular person or locality, in any 
respect whatsoever, or to subject any particular person or locality to any 
unjust discrimination or any undue or unreasonable prejudice of dis- 
advantage in any respect whatsoever. 

375-A:ll Adherence to Tariffs. No household goods carrier by 
motor vehicle shall charge or demand or collect or receive a greater or 
less or different compensation for transportation or for any service in 
connection therewith between the points enumerated in such tariff than 
the rates and charges specified in the tariffs in effect at the time; and no 
such carrier shall refund or remit in any manner or by any device, di- 
rectly or indirectly, or through any agent or otherwise, any portion of 
the rates or charges so specified, or extend to any person any privileges 
or facilities for transportation between points in this state except such as 
are specified in its tariffs. 

375-A:12 Schedules of Minimum Rates and Charges. It shall be the 
duty of every household goods carrier by motor vehicle to file with the 
commission, publish, post and keep open for public inspection in the 
form and manner prescribed by the commission, schedules of minimum 
charges, or in the discretion of the commission, copies of contracts of 
such carrier between points in this state, and any rule, regulation or 
practice affecting such charges and the value of the service thereunder. 
No such carrier shall demand, charge or collect a less compensation for 
such transportation than the charges filed in accordance with this section, 
as affected by any rule, regulation or practice so filed, and it shall be un- 
lawful for any such carrier, by the furnishing of special services, facilities 
or privileges, or by any other device whatsoever to charge, accept or re- 
ceive less than the minimum charges so filed; provided, however, that 
any such carrier or carriers, or any class or group thereof, may apply to 
the commission for relief from the provisions of this section, and the 
commission may grant such relief to such extent and for such time, and 
in such manner as in its opinion is consistent with the public interest. 

375-A:I3 Accounts, Records and Reports. The commission is here- 
by authorized to require annual reports from all household goods car- 
riers as defined herein, subject to the provisions of this chapter, to pre- 
scribe the manner and form in which such reports shall be made, and 
to require from such carriers specific answers to all questions upon which

section shall be punished by a fine of not more than twenty-five dollars.
