Maggie Hassan has consistently tried to have it both ways with regards to policies that would force Granite Staters to pay more to register and operate their vehicles. Despite Hassan's rhetoric, her record shows that that she is no friend to the vast majority of New Hampshire families that drive each day.
When considering a hike in the state's gas tax, on the trail, Maggie Hassan was once quick to tell a tourism group "that any increase in the gas tax or tolls is unlikely in the near future."
Governor Maggie Hassan then flip-flipped
in less than two years and signed a 23% increase in the gas tax into law. Granite Staters already pay some of the highest motor vehicle fees in the country,
so it is understandable why, at one point, Governor Maggie Hassan was "noncommittal" to the press about an initiative that included an increase in the the state's vehicle registration fees. However, on three separate occasions, even as early as 2009, Maggie Hassan proposed or supported legislation that would raise it significantly.
