Secondly, this Thursday, October 27 the New Hampshire House Ways and Means Committee will hold a hearing on HB 593, which would allow for state-controlled introduction of video lottery and table gaming in New Hampshire. The additional revenue stream from passing this legislation could help spur job creation and business tax reductions in New Hampshire. It is worth noting that Massachusetts is about to undertake a similar measure, which means that if our legislature fails to act; we stand to lose those dollars and jobs to Massachusetts.
Third, I am pleased to announce that Senator Jim Luther has introduced a piece of legislation that will end our state’s participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, known as RGGI.
As you may recall, similar measures were passed twice with veto-proof majorities by the New Hampshire House but the Senate failed to garner the number of votes necessary to override Governor Lynch’s veto. We applaud Senator Luther for his willingness to remove New Hampshire from this failed cap-and-trade scheme and eliminate the hidden tax that is being passed onto our state’s electricity consumers.
We believe these two pieces of legislation could be integral to the economic prosperity of our state and will continue to track them and update the Legislative Score Card produced by our foundation.
Finally, the New Hampshire Redress of Grievances Committee hearing (that I mentioned last week) concerning a private property owner’s faulty property assessment that he is facing due to the arbitrary “View Tax” will be rescheduled.
I will make you aware of the date as soon as it has been set so that you can attend the hearing and show your support for New Hampshire private property rights.
