Sen. Lou D’Allesandro’s Casino Bill Violates the NHGOP Platform
The New Hampshire Republican Party platform states, under II. TAXES AND SPENDING, “Reject expanded casino and video lottery gambling as a means to balance the budget or increase spending.” Unfortunately, that’s exactly what Senate Bill 152 does. Here is the link to our Platform. http://www.nhgop.org/pages/detail/32
Sen. Lou D’Allesandro’s Casino Bill Violates the NHGOP Platform. It isn’t surprising that a bill with Democratic Sen. Lou D’Allesandro as the prime sponsor violates the NHGOP Platform. It isn’t surprising that a bill which is being pushed most strongly by Democratic Governor Maggie Hassan violates the NHGOP Platform. I’m also not surprised by NHGOP Chair Jennifer Horn’s several press releases against Gov. Hassan’s support for SB152. I’m hoping the Republicans in the New House House of Representatives, many of whom voted on the NHGOP Platform, stick up for the Platform even if it means opposing a Democratic Senator and the Democratic Governor.
