AFPNH - The Fight for Economic Prosperity Continues in Concord


First, today the House and Senate will be voting on two separate pieces of legislation that will affect our state’s economic prosperity:

  • The Senate will vote on CACR 6. Already passed by the House, CACR 6 would require a 3/5 majority vote to impose any new or increased taxes or license fees.
  • Separately, the House will vote on HB 593 which will lower the tax burden on New Hampshire businesses and create jobs by permitting gambling in the Granite State.

We will continue to provide you with updates on these and other pieces of legislation that impact New Hampshire taxpayers including SB 227, which would change the status of the members of the board of tax and land appeals so that members ARE NOT full-time employees but would receive per diem and mileage reimbursement for attending to board duties.

I was pleased to be able to provide testimony last week in favor of this bill that will make board members more accountable to the people the board was designed to serve AND save New Hampshire taxpayers money. Currently each board member’s salary and benefits exceed $100,000!

You can read more about my testimony on our website or the Nashua Telegraph. Please note in the Telegraph piece that the last quote attributed to me was actually written by Paul Franklin.

Second, I hope you will join me at the Rochester 9.12 Group Meeting next Monday, February 13 or the Bedford GOP Meeting next Tuesday, February 14. I always appreciate the opportunity to engage in discussions with other conservative organizations from around the state and would be pleased to accept any other speaking invitations. Please reach out to Joy King with any such request.

Finally, thank you for your continuing support of our efforts. Please remember to Like us on Facebook or Follow us on Twitter.
