Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Governor Maggie Hassan's announcement on WMUR-TV that she will sign legislation raising New Hampshire's gas tax.

 

 "A gas tax hike will burden small businesses, kill jobs and hurt the working families who can least afford it. Governor Maggie Hassan is discarding the standard set by her mentor, Governor John Lynch, who repeatedly opposed this devastating tax increase on the middle class because it was bad for New Hampshire. The governor's decision to finally announce her support for this burdensome tax increase proves that she lacks a commitment to fiscal discipline and that she is no John Lynch."
