Manchester, NH - So far we've seen how Sen. Hassan has made it more expensive to register your boat for the open water as well as more expensive to captain it. Now, her vote to make it more expensive to buy and sell that boat is "Maggie's Tax of the Day" for October 10, 2012.
As the 2009 budget continued to flounder, Sen. Hassan continued to look to the boaters of New Hampshire to balance the load. This time, she increased the fee paid to the government for simply buy and selling a boat by 66%.
Background: As a State Senator:
