NHGOP STATEMENT ON SENATE GAS TAX VOTE

Concord – New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn released the following statement on the Senate vote to raise the gas tax:

“A gas tax hike during challenging economic times is wrong for New Hampshire because it will unfairly burden the middle class and hurt small businesses. Democrat Governor John Lynch was right when he vigorously opposed a gas tax increase and said that the state needs to do a better job managing its existing funds instead of trying to take more money out of the pockets of working families. By vowing to sign this tax hike, Governor Maggie Hassan continues to prove that she is no John Lynch, and that she is out of touch with New Hampshire’s fiscally responsible values.”

Background: Governor John Lynch: “Before we consider the need for additional revenue – which I don’t think is there – we need to manage the funds that we have today, which we are not doing well,” he said in a meeting with editors from The Citizen and Foster’s Daily Democrat.
