- Rep. Cunningham calls SB450 a "garbage can"

New Hampshire Representative Steven Cunningham writes in his May 8, 2010 column on,

"What else to call Senate Bill 450 than a "garbage can." ... everything good or bad has been attached to this bill as an amendment at the last minute." "The state stops sending revenue money to the counties and towns that normally share it. Now the county charges the towns for the missing money and the towns raise property taxes for both. Who pays?"
