NHGOP - This Year's Pumpkin Bill

CONCORD – Fergus Cullen, Chairman of the New Hampshire Republican Party made the following statement today, as the New Hampshire House took up the issue of giving 17-year-olds voting rights:

“This is reminiscent of the infamous pumpkin bill brought to the legislature at the behest of school children, in this case, the daughter of a Democrat senator. Now that the Democrats have finished wasting time on this voting bill and dispatched the bill to the Supreme Court, maybe they can concentrate instead on a different 17;  the 17.5 percent spending increase that has resulted in the Lynch budget deficit. This is just one more example of the Democrats’ misplaced legislative priorities, focusing on trivial matters instead of substantive issues.”
