NH House Republican Alliance: Statement on SB 308 - More money to HHS 

The House Republican Alliance issued a statement today on the passage of SB 308, a bill that will increase the amount of funding paid to the health services planning and review board.  

 

"The board already receives $500,000 to operate and keep out competition in health care through the Certificate of Need program.  They are now asking and receiving another $300,000, a 60% increase in their funding because the board does not have the expertise to develop a state plan.  One  must question what the first $500,000 was used for, if not their expertise and now we are lavishing even more money on them?" Stated Rep. Dan McGuire, Epsom." We are potentially facing a $400 million deficit if the MET law is not upheld.  We should be looking for ways to trim our budget and work efficiently, not continually growing spending."
