NH budget hearing in Claremont

The House Finance committee is holding five regional budget hearings. One will be in Claremont, Monday, March 18 from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Sugar River Valley Regional Technical Center, 111 South Street, Claremont.

If you oppose the 83% increase of the gas tax then attend the hearing and say so.

If you think that the Highway Fund should be spent on actual highways, not on things that have nothing to do with fixing and maintaining roads and bridges, then go and say so.

If you think that the budget should assume realistic revenue estimates, and that it should be balanced without hypothetical casino revenue, then go and tell your Representatives.

If you want to balance out the many special interests requesting more spending for their particular programs, then show up and testify.

Testifying is easy. Hey, if I could learn to do it, then anyone can.
