AFP-NH Launches Statewide Campaign Thanking Gov. Sununu for Opposing New Entitlement Program

Apr 20, 2018 by AFP

CONCORD, N.H. – Americans for Prosperity-New Hampshire (AFP-NH) on Friday launched a digital ad campaign thanking Governor Sununu for helping to block House Bill 628, a bill that would have established a new entitlement paid family leave program paid for by an income tax on New Hampshire workers. The ad urges Granite Staters to contact Governor Sununu and thank him for opposing House Bill 628.


“Imposing a new entitlement program paid by an income tax on New Hampshire workers directly contradicts our ‘New Hampshire Advantage’ of no sales or income tax. Granite Staters value and cherish our economically free state and this entitlement program would have threatened what makes our state such a great place to work and live,” said Greg Moore, AFP-NH State Director. “Every entitlement program experiences inevitable expansion and this bill would have followed down the same path. We thank the Governor for protecting taxpayers and opposing this unworkable bill.”


Governor Sununu vocally opposed House Bill 628 and sent a letter to the Finance committee, indicating a veto threat should it come to his desk. Shortly after the Governor sent his letter, the Senate Finance Committee voted against this income tax.
