AFPNH - RTW Rally at the Capital 

I am writing to ask that you and your members be part of an historic rally and reception at the Statehouse in Concord on Wednesday, November 30 at 8:00 AM. 

We will meet in the Café of the Basement for FREE Food and Coffee. 

As I am sure you are aware, Speaker Bill O’Brien has called the House into session that day.

This could be the day we have all been waiting for – the day of the Right-To-Work veto override.

While that is not for certain, what we CAN count on is that the unions and other liberal contingencies from across New Hampshire and other states will be present in large numbers at the Statehouse that day in an attempt to intimidate members of the House and influence any possible override vote.

We have to meet them with equal measure! This vote represents the culmination of months of hard work on the part of many to make New Hampshire the first Right-To-Work state in New England. The benefits to our state, our workers and our economy would be numerous. 

Unfortunately, after the recent defeat in Ohio the unions are likely to feel more confident than ever that their scare tactics and misinformation campaigns are working!

Please join me in showing the unions and the rest of the country that the wave of supporters who ushered in elected officials last fall who shared our commitment to fiscal responsibility and restraint and economic growth is still alive and well in the Granite State!

The union members, who will be paid to attend, have been pushing our House members around all summer in an attempt to keep New Hampshire workers trapped!

We cannot allow this to continue! We have to be there for all the people who rather than show up at the Statehouse that day will be showing up to their jobs!

I ask that you and all your members join us at the Statehouse on November 30.

In order to ensure an accurate attendance count for the reception and rally, please have your members visit this site to register for this historic event

Be present and be a part of history!

U.S. Rep. Frank Guinta introduces bill to make government spending & performance info more transparent and accessible

(Washington – October 27, 2011)    Representative Frank Guinta (R, NH-01) has introduced a significant piece of legislation designed to make federal spending more transparent and accessible to all Americans.  He authored H.R. 3262, the Government Results Transparency Act (GRTA).   

Federal agencies have been required to track and publish their performance results for 18 years.  Last year, Congress also required them to publicly list all of their programs and explain how those programs contribute to overall goals.  But these laws do not require program-by-program performance data to be tracked against program-by-program spending data.

The GRTA builds a bridge between performance data and spending data.   Under GRTA, the government will publish all of its performance data and spending data for each program on a public website in a format that makes it easy for anyone to search, download and analyze. 

Representative Guinta released the following statement:

“All Americans have the right to know how their tax dollars are being spent, plus what results their money is –or isn’t– producing.  Under my bill, citizens and government officials alike can get complete information on spending and performance together in one location, and read it in plain, everyday English, too.  The saying goes ‘Knowledge is power.’  The more informed our citizens and public officials are, the better equipped we are to make thoughtful, intelligent decisions on which programs are effective and which are wasting hard-earned tax dollars, and that’s good for everyone.”

The bill is being sent to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee for consideration.  Representative Guinta serves on that committee. 


AFPNH - Important Bills Moving through the State Legislature


First, anyone interested in attending the Defending the American Dream Summit in Washington, D.C. this November 4-5 hosted by our national sister organization, Americans for Prosperity Foundation, can now receive a 25% discount off their registrationCLICK HERE for more information or email Joy King for details on this exciting and educational event.

Secondly, this Thursday, October 27 the New Hampshire House Ways and Means Committee  will hold a hearing on HB 593, which would allow for state-controlled introduction of video lottery and table gaming in New Hampshire. The additional revenue stream from passing this legislation could help spur job creation and business tax reductions in New Hampshire. It is worth noting that Massachusetts is about to undertake a similar measure, which means that if our legislature fails to act; we stand to lose those dollars and jobs to Massachusetts.

Third, I am pleased to announce that Senator Jim Luther has introduced a piece of legislation that will end our state’s participation in the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, known as RGGI.

As you may recall, similar measures were passed twice with veto-proof majorities by the New Hampshire House but the Senate failed to garner the number of votes necessary to override Governor Lynch’s veto.  We applaud Senator Luther for his willingness to remove New Hampshire from this failed cap-and-trade scheme and eliminate the hidden tax that is being passed onto our state’s electricity consumers.

We believe these two pieces of legislation could be integral to the economic prosperity of our state and will continue to track them and update the Legislative Score Card produced by our foundation.

Finally, the New Hampshire Redress of Grievances Committee hearing (that I mentioned last week) concerning a private property owner’s faulty property assessment that he is facing due to the arbitrary “View Tax” will be rescheduled.

I will make you aware of the date as soon as it has been set so that you can attend the hearing and show your support for New Hampshire private property rights.

NumbersUSA - Congress Must Get Serious About Immigration Enforcement in New Hampshire

Congressional leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives have been influenced by outside consultants into preventing H.R. 2885, the Legal Workforce Act that mandates the use of E-Verify, from receiving a floor vote in the House this fall. Their reasoning behind doing this is to keep Congress focused on "restoring jobs." Yet the Legal Workforce Act will open up nearly 7 million jobs nationally, and could put tens of thousands of unemployed New Hampshire residents back to work!

The Legal Workforce Act represents the strong enforcement-based immigration policy that a majority of New Hampshire residents have demanded for years. This great bill will create more job opportunities in New Hampshire by mandating the E-Verify worker verification system for all New Hampshire employers, which screens out illegal aliens working in New Hampshire's jobs.

Send this critical message to your New Hampshire U.S. House Representative today, urging him/her to do more to protect vulnerable New Hampshire workers from cheap illegal labor. This is a completely free service. There is no cost to you.

Dear (Your U.S. Representative Will Appear Here),

Please help to put millions of Americans back to work by pressuring Ways & Means Chairman Dave Camp to act on H.R. 2885, the Legal Workforce Act, a very important piece of job-creating legislation!

The Legal Workforce Act will require all businesses to use E-Verify within 2 years. This important piece of legislation can quickly open up more than 7 million jobs currently held by illegal aliens for unemployed Americans.

The Legal Workforce Act requires the Social Security Administration to notify employees when their Social Security number is being used multiple times. This provision will dramatically reduce identity theft, while also helping millions of unemployed Americans find work by freeing up jobs currently held by illegal aliens.

Why is the Ways and Means Committee protecting jobs for illegal aliens instead of releasing the Legal Workforce Act for a vote on the floor? Doesn't Congress want to put jobless Americans back to work?

Please support the Legal Workforce Act by pressuring Chairman Camp to bring it up for a vote. This bill would have an immediate impact on fighting identity theft and helping America's unemployed!
