NH Senate Republican Statement on Democrats' Call for an Income Tax

Concord, NH – Today, Senate Minority Leader Peter Bragdon (R-Milford) responded to House Speaker Terie Norelli's declaration that she is open to an income tax for New Hampshire:


“$1 billion in new spending and now Democrats want to look at an income tax! The Democrats desire for an income tax shows how legislative leaders in Concord have lost touch with New Hampshire citizens. That is exactly the wrong direction for New Hampshire.


"Republicans in the House and Senate continue to seek a bipartisan Plan B for the potential budget crisis that focuses on spending restraint, not new taxes on the working families of New Hampshire.


“We call on Governor Lynch to direct his Democrat Legislative leaders to focus on responsible solutions to looming budget issues, instead of conjuring up harmful ideas of new taxes.”
