Statement of Republican Congressional Candidate Grant Bosse following the failure of Paul Hodes' gas tax increase today in the Senate:
"With gas prices topping $4 a gallon, Paul Hodes and Nancy Pelosi tried to make gas even more expensive. Fortunately, their bad idea has stalled in the Senate. With this vote to protect taxpayers and free market ideas, the Republican Party is starting to restore the trust of voters. I'm pleased that New Hampshire drivers will not have to pay for Paul Hodes latest tax increase at the pump. Now we can look for ways to lower energy prices, such as the comprehensive Energy Plan I've proposed."
