It’s hard to believe that it’s only the second week in January! Already, citizens of the Granite State have participated in their solemn tradition of helping select the next President of the United States and the New Hampshire House has voted to override two of the Governor’s vetoes. As you know, we are just getting started. Here are several items and events of interest.
First, AFP-NH is pleased to partner with the Republican Liberty Caucus in inviting you to attend an informational meeting on Wednesday, January 18 about the proposed Health Care Compact legislation, HB 1560. I encourage you to come out to the Milford Town Hall located at 1 Union Square in Milford at 6:30PM on January 18 to learn more about HB 1560 which would return more money and power to the states with regard to health care. The event is free but RSVPs are recommended. Please email Joy King to RSVP.
Second, on Thursday, January 26 Americans for Prosperity Foundation in New Hampshire will host a Simulcast Town Hall to “Restore American Exceptionalism” featuring Fox News contributor Dick Morris at the Draft Sports Bar in Concord at 7PM. This free event is part of the National School Choice Week (January 22 to January 28).
Please go here to reserve your free ticket today!
Third, I will be speaking at the Wakefield, Effingham, Brookfield GOP Meeting next Tuesday night at Lino’s Restaurant in Wakefield at 7PM. Please consider coming by to take part in our discussion reviewing the presidential primary and looking ahead to the legislative session in Concord and the November elections.
Finally, there are several issues moving through the legislature that I wanted to make you aware of:
- This Thursday the House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on HB 1223. This law would hold public officials and bodies that violate the state’s Right to Know Law personally accountable.
- The battle lines are sharpening over New Hampshire’s participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). Conservation New Hampshire has included HB 1490, which aims to repeal our state’s participation in RGGI, in their dirty dozen list of bills it finds “hostile” to their cause. As you know, AFP-NH strongly believes that RGGI is a cap-and-trade scheme and supports repealing New Hampshire’s involvement in the program.
We will continue to monitor these pieces of legislation and any others that affect economic prosperity in our state.
