NHGOP STATEMENT ON HOUSE PASSAGE OF PENSION REFORM

CONCORD –Jack Kimball, Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party today released the following statement regarding the passage of pension reform by the House.

“I commend the House and the Senate for their common sense solutions to reform the state’s broken retirement system.  They focused on the financial viability of the state and they're protecting the taxpayers.”

“John Lynch and his Democrat protectors had taken us down an unsustainable path with billions in unfunded liabilities, bloated pensions and out-of-control spending.”

“With Republicans in the majority, we're finally handling our problems in Concord like responsible adults.  And Right to Work is next, whether Governor Lynch likes it or not.”
