MANCHESTER – Americans for Prosperity – New Hampshire is launching an online petition today opposing the gas and diesel tax hike. The petition will be announced at a press conference immediately prior to the public hearing on HB 617 which includes the gas and diesel tax hike.
“Much of this debate has focused on roads and bridges or the $1 Billion in revenue to be raised,” said Greg Moore, State Director of Americans for Prosperity – New Hampshire. “We believe the focus should be on how this affects NH people – our families and our businesses who will be impacted on a daily basis if this tax increase is passed.”
The press conference will feature individuals discussing how the proposed gasoline and diesel tax hike will impact their lives and their businesses. The petition is available at www.stopnhgastax.com.
“People are already paying too much at the pump,” continued Moore. “We encourage everyone to sign this petition and let their elected officials know how this increase will impact their lives.”
