New Hampshire establishes outdoor recreation office

October 24th, 2019 / By: / Industry News

New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu recently signed legislation establishing the Office of Outdoor Recreation Industry Development within the New Hampshire Department of Business and Economic Affairs (BEA). This legislation formalizes the state’s commitment to the businesses, natural assets and attractions that make up the outdoor recreation industry, which employs nearly 38,000 people in New Hampshire and accounts for 3.3 percent of the GDP.

The new office of Outdoor Recreation Industry Development will be dedicated to connecting outdoor lifestyle to economic growth policies, making New Hampshire the 16th state to create an office or taskforce focused on expanding outdoor recreation opportunities.
