Tuftonboro’s state representative, Glenn Cordelli, attended a signing ceremony for HB 645 recently. Cordelli co-sponsored the bill, which is also known as Willa’s Law, named after a four-year-old girl who died in an unlicensed day care. The bi-partisan bill changes state law to make it a felony, instead of a misdemeanor, when negligence causes severe injury or death. It also requires day cares to be licensed.
Asked for comment, Cordelli said, “This is a great example of why I enjoy serving in the New Hampshire House as your representative. After the tragic death of this little girl, we discovered a loophole in the law that we were able to remedy. It makes the time and effort worth it.” Cordelli represents Tuftonboro, Moultonborough, and Sandwich in the New Hampshire house of representatives and is running for re-election in the upcoming September 13 state primary.
