New Hampshire has an embarrassment of riches when it comes to outdoor recreation opportunities. But some recreation groups and business leaders say the state isn’t doing enough to boost the recreation industry.

The Senate’s Executive Departments and Administration Committee heard testimony on the bill, SB 234, last week. Among those testifying in favor of the bill were Taylor Caswell, the commissioner of the Department of Business and Economic Affairs in which this new position would reside, and Rob Riley, the president of the Northern Forest Center.
