Americans for Prosperity-NH Testifies in Opposition to SB 120: Citizens Must be Free to Criticize and Question Elected Officials

February 13, 2013

WINDHAM – Americans for Prosperity New Hampshire State Director, Corey R. Lewandowski, will testify today in opposition to SB 120, an act relative to political contributions and expenditures and relative to reporting by political committees.

“Once elected, officials should not use their position to guarantee their incumbency by limiting the free speech of those with whom they disagree,” said Corey R. Lewandowski, State Director of Americans for Prosperity-New Hampshire.  “An assault on some free speech is an assault on all free speech.”

The hearing will take place before the Senate Public and Municipal Affairs Committee at 10:30AM in LOB 102.

“In addition to possibly placing donor disclosure requirements on groups like the Girl Scouts and the Catholic Church, SB 120 would amend New Hampshire’s campaign finance statute in a manner that renders the law unintelligible, impossible to comply with, impossible to administer, and impossible to adjudicate with respect to determining when an entity must register and report as a political committee,” Lewandowski continued.
