NHGOP STATEMENT ON PASSAGE OF SENATE BUDGET 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding the passage of a Senate budget:

 

"In contrast to Governor Hassan's proposed tax hikes, Senate Republicans have passed a thoughtful, balanced budget that would grow the economy, create new jobs and lower taxes on New Hampshire families. Under Governor Hassan, job growth in New Hampshire ranks near the bottom - 41st out of 50 states; Senate Republicans' budget represents a victory for New Hampshire and a clear path forward in reversing that trend. For months, Governor Hassan has preferred partisan attacks rather than honest debate. Thankfully, Senate Republicans have demonstrated the leadership that Governor Hassan hasn't by providing a clear plan to grow New Hampshire's economy."

 

BACKGROUND:

 

"Adding to arguments that New Hampshire's economy could use some added oomph, a newly released analysis of post-Great Recession job growth in all 50 states puts the Granite State near the bottom of the pack." (Jeff Feingold, "Study finds NH could do better when it comes to job growth," NHBR, 5/28/15)

NHGOP APPLAUDS SENATE FINANCE COMMITTEE BUDGET PASSAGE 

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding the passage of a two-year budget in the Senate Finance Committee:


"We applaud Senate Republicans for crafting a budget that lives within our means, cuts taxes, funds core services and promotes economic growth. This budget represents a clear alternative to Governor Hassan's reckless fiscal proposal that raises taxes, increases spending by $1 billion, and puts us on a path to an income tax. It's time for Governor Hassan to stop making excuses for her failed leadership, end her partisan attacks, and support the Senate's sensible budget."

NH GOP - WHERE IS ANDREW HOSMER HIDING? 

WHERE IS ANDREW HOSMER HIDING?

 

Senate Finance Committee Member MIA During Critical Week In Budget Process

 

Concord - Senate Finance Committee member Andrew Hosmer (D-Laconia) has failed to show up for work during critical hearings this week on the state budget. Hosmer's absence comes as the Finance Committee finalizes the state's two-year budget proposal this week. 

 

"After launching partisan attacks and blindly defending Governor Maggie Hassan's irresponsible proposal that increases state spending by $1 billion, Senator Andrew Hosmer has gone missing during the Senate Finance Committee's most important week. Instead of rolling up his sleeves and working across the aisle to find bipartisan solutions to New Hampshire's fiscal challenges, Senator Hosmer isn't even bothering to show up for work," said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. "Senator Hosmer owes his constituents an explanation for his unacceptable absence and failure to do his job."

 

Despite Senator Hosmer's absence, New Hampshire Democrats have still featured his dishonest attacks in press releases this week.
