House Republicans Vote Against Democrats 3rd Attempt at Income Tax This Term

CONCORD – House Republican Leader Dick Hinch (R-Merrimack) issued a statement upon the approval by the House of Representatives of HB712, relative to a mandatory family and medical leave insurance program funded by a 0.5% tax on wages.

“New Hampshire has never had a tax on wages. We know we can provide family and medical leave coverage on a voluntary basis without a tax on wages. The governor has a plan, and we can support that concept. Democrats insist that the tax on income that they included in SB1 and HB2, which were both vetoed by the governor, is their one and only solution. They have taken family and medical leave hostage, and the ransom is an income tax. It’s unfortunate that they will not work with the governor to get a plan in place that gets the job done without siphoning dollars from everyone’s paychecks to pay for it.”
