First of all, thank you to the more than 300 people who attended our second annual Conservative of the Year event last Friday in Concord. I greatly appreciate you taking time to join us in honoring U.S. Senator Ayotte as our Conservative of the Year and making the dinner a must-attend event.
Second, we are continuing to advocate for legislation in Concord that will lead to lower taxes, less regulation and smaller government.
This week I submitted testimony to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee hearing on HB 1487, also known as Liquid RGGI, which would prohibit the state from participating in any low carbon fuel standards program requiring quotas, caps, or mandates on fuels used for transportation, industrial purposes, or home heating. New Hampshire DOES NOT need a liquid version of the already failed RGGI program. Unfortunately, the committee reported the bill ITL (Inexpedient to Legislate).
I also submitted testimony to the Senate Health and Human Services Committee hearing on HB 1642 which exempts destination specialty hospitals from the certificate of need process. This legislation provides an opportunity to create new jobs in our state in the ever-expanding health care sector.
The Health Care Compact legislation would bring the decision-making authority over health care decisions back to NH and closer to the people where it belongs.
I urge you to contact Chairman Jeb Bradley and the Members of the Senate Health and Human Services Committee and ask that they vote OTP (Ought to Pass) on the Health Care Compact (HB 1560).
You can use the contact information below.
