NHGOP STATEMENT ON HOUSE PASSAGE OF GAS TAX HIKE

Concord - New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on today the New Hampshire House vote to raise the gas tax:
 
"The last thing we should do during these difficult economic times is take hundreds of millions of dollars out of the pockets of struggling New Hampshire families. The House Democrat Leadership's devastating gas tax hike is bad policy, and it would hurt economic growth and kill jobs. It is time for Governor Hassan to stop refusing to answer questions about her party's gas tax hike, start providing leadership on this issue, and pledge to veto this disastrous legislation."
