House Republicans Pass an Anti-Business and Anti-Economic Development Bill

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – New Hampshire House Democratic Leader Terie Norelli issued the following statement on the passage of House Bill 1282-FN-L, a bill that would decrease the availability and affordability of housing for middle class people in New Hampshire.

“In 2008, the Democratic-controlled Legislature worked hand and hand with the Business and Industry Association to pass workforce housing legislation, which was a key priority for House Democrats and NH’s Business Community. Creating greater opportunities for affordable workforce housing here in New Hampshire is important to our families, our businesses and our economy – the last thing we should be doing is repealing our progress.”

“This is just another example how bill after reckless bill, State House Republicans aren’t focused on jobs and the economy.”
