Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today applauding bills passed by the Senate Ways and Means Committee that would reduce burdensome taxes on New Hampshire businesses:
"Taxes on New Hampshire business are some of the highest in the country. They discourage job creation and make it harder for recent college graduates to find jobs and stay in our state.
"We applaud Senate Republicans for keeping their promise to voters to reform an outdated, burdensome tax code. With states across New England reducing their business taxes, New Hampshire must follow suit or be left behind.
"Passage of these commonsense reforms should be a top priority for lawmakers in Concord. Governor Hassan should abandon her reckless plans to raise taxes and join Senate Republicans in supporting legislation that will send a clear message that New Hampshire is open for business."
Concord - The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today posted a job listing for Governor Maggie Hassan's proposed "Chief Operating Officer" position on Craig's List. Applicants must be able to "do the governor's job while she pursues other political opportunities."
"New Hampshire voters elected Maggie Hassan to manage state government - not to hire a highly paid bureaucrat to do her job while she runs for United States Senate. Our state deserves a full time governor in the corner office instead of a self-centered politician like Maggie Hassan who is solely focused on her political ambitions," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn.

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement today on Governor Hassan's annual budget address:
"Two years ago, Governor Hassan was embarrassed when her budget proposal fell apart after the legislature rejected gambling revenue that she had hoped would cover her reckless spending increases. Hassan's decision to include more imaginary gambling revenue in her latest proposal proves that she didn't learn her lesson and that she is out of new ideas to balance the budget.
"Governor Hassan's proposed billion dollar spending increase and reckless tax increases demonstrate her lack of commitment to New Hampshire's fiscally responsible values. The governor's budget is a the wrong approach, and it will threaten New Hampshire's fiscal integrity."
Legislation Also Forbids Public Employees From Campaigning On Taxpayers' Time
Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn issued the following statement applauding a new bill introduced by Senate Republicans that will strengthen the Right to Know law. New Hampshire Journal reports that the legislation will make it clear that the law applies to the governor's office:
"New Hampshire's Right to Know law clearly applies to the office of the governor, and it is unfortunate that Governor Hassan believes that she should not be held to the same transparency requirements that apply to local boards of selectmen. We applaud Senate Republicans for working to strengthen this important law and make New Hampshire state government more open and transparent.
"Governor Hassan is not above the law, and she should not be able to simply ignore Right to Know requests as she prepares to use the corner office as a stepping stone for her political career. New Hampshire deserves a full-time governor who is focused on moving our state forward instead of moving on to a United States Senate campaign."
