I am sure the debate was heated. The thing that is great about Lake Winnipesaukee is the fact that it is the "Big Lake". It is where people come to have fun. There are rules in place to keep people safe. There are also many other lakes in the Lakes Region that would be great for water skiing, Kayaking, etc. Winnipesaukee is great for boating.

Approximately 200 people -- many from the Lakes Region -- gathered in Representative's Hall at the Statehouse for a Senate Transportation Committee hearing on House Bill 847.
The bill is proposing a 45 mph daytime and 25 mph nighttime speed limit on the Big Lake.
