NH's Leading Taxpayer Group Gives Award to House Republicans for Fiscal Responsibility

Concord – The 2011 legislature was presented with the Golden Deficit Gavel award Saturday at the annual Coalition of NH Taxpayers (CNHT) Reunion Picnic in Hillsborough. The award, inscribed "To the brave New Hampshire legislators who in 2011 saved our state from financial ruin," was presented to House Speaker William O’Brien.

 "The Coalition of New Hampshire Taxpayers speaks for the average Granite Stater. They know that good government is one that serves the people, is limited and fiscally prudent. Republicans heard that message loud and clear last November when we were elected to the majority. We simply must continue to be good stewards of taxpayer money.  That is the principle we used to craft this years budget. House  Republicans said, "Here’s our revenue estimates, this is the line in the sand and we’re not going to spend any more," said House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt (R-Salem).

Founded in 1999, CNHT's goal, according to their website is to keep taxes low, government small and honest, protect individual rights and freedoms, and preserve the New Hampshire Advantage.






CONCORD- Jack Kimball, Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party today released the following statement congratulating Congressman Frank Guinta on being named Free Enterprise Legislator of the Year by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC).
