Press Release

Concord, NH – Today, the New Hampshire Senate supported the Ways and Means Committee recommendation of inexpedient to legislate for SB 587-L, lowering the population requirement for a city or town to collect additional fees for motor vehicle registration. After the vote, Senator Harold French (R-Franklin) issued the following statement:

“We saw this same legislation last session and I am pleased that the Senate stood by their previous decision that raising taxes on car registration is bad public policy,” said Senator Harold French (R-Franklin). “If the city of Concord is looking for more revenue they should look for savings in their budget or find a way to generate their own revenue.”

“It is important for New Hampshire legislators to protect taxpayers from unnecessary taxes and spend their money in a responsible way,” French added.
