Bedford, NH- House Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R-Auburn) released the following statement after Democrat-sponsored floor amendment 1073h to HB2 failed on a vote of 174-206.

“Republicans made it a priority to cut property taxes by $100 million dollars in the state budget, however House Democrats sponsored a floor amendment to put that $100 million back and ensure that their constituents get zero property tax cuts. After more than a year of New Hampshire citizens having to tighten their belt, this property tax reduction would be a huge relief. Today Democrats betrayed their true intentions for wealth redistribution by opposing actual property tax cuts.”
