Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on the State Senate Finance Committee rejecting the Democrats' gas tax hike:
"Today's vote serves as another reminder that the Republican led state Senate is the only thing standing between New Hampshire families and the Democrats' reckless tax hikes. The Senate Finance Committee deserves credit for rejecting this disastrous gas tax increase and promoting fiscally responsible policies that will grow our economy.
"The House Democrat Leadership's devastating gas tax would kill jobs, unfairly burden commuters and hurt small businesses. It is disgraceful that Governor Hassan would not pledge to veto a gas tax if it came to her desk."
