CONCORD, N.H. – As U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg meets with local leaders in Manchester, Americans for Prosperity-New Hampshire (AFP-NH) today released the following statement urging lawmakers to reject plans to expand commuter rail services that would require massive taxpayer subsidies.
“For years, politicians have been trying to sell Granite Staters on a new passenger rail service that would do little to nothing to solve our state’s commuting problems,” said AFP-NH State Director Greg Moore. “With a hefty $11 million price tag, this pet project would only benefit a few riders while resulting crushing fiscal damage for generations to come. Instead of forcing taxpayers to foot the bill, AFP-NH urges lawmakers to oppose this boondoggle and focus on the real needs of their constituents. We need 21st century transportation solutions that are modern, efficient and practical, not expensive 19th century technology that doesn’t solve today’s problems. New Hampshire taxpayers deserve better than being forced to embrace someone else’s nostalgia.”
