New NH House bill would let NH municipalities create own topless ordinances

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — New Hampshire's House has rejected a bill that would have made it a crime for women to expose their breasts in public, but the Senate is dealing with a bill that would let communities regulate attire at municipal parks, beaches or pools.

The Portsmouth Herald reports Republican Sen. Nancy Stiles of Hampton introduced a bill that would let towns regulate when and where people can bath, sunbathe and swim in municipal parks, beaches, pools or other municipal properties. It also allows clothing regulations.

Recent efforts to prevent women from exposing their breasts have come after a "Free the Nipple" movement led to two women being cited for going topless at a Gilford beach.
