8 New Hampshire House Committee Hearings of interest on Tuesday, 2-5-13:

State-House-Summer1

If you live in NH, I recommend that you look into these 8 bills. If you can make it to the New Hampshire State House, please sign the committee sheets against the 3 anti-liberty bills and in support of the 5 pro-liberty bills (or even testify if you have something to add to the conversation). If not, please email the respective committees. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Note: A NH State Rep. informed me about another bill, HB302, so I updated the number of bills from 7 to 8.

    Someone suggested that there is another anti-liberty hearing of note on Tuesday. Here is the information.

    http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/bill_status/Bill_status.aspx?lsr=577&sy=2013&sortoption=&txtsessionyear=2013&txtbillnumber=hb488

    HB488: Changing the definition of “cigarette” under the tobacco tax to match the definition of “cigarette” under the Master Settlement Agreement.
    I was told this will increase the state tax on loose tobacco. Loose tobacco is sold in NH, especially in border stores. Lots of people from MA and other states buy it when they drive up to NH to take advantage of the low sin taxes. The fear this that increasing this tax will hurt many businesses in border communities and may cost jobs. I haven’t studied the issue well enough to know if that fear is justified.
    The hearing starts at 10:15:00 in room 202 of the LOB building.
