Two take-aways from NH’s “opting out” of the all but mandatory paid family medical leave act HB 628

From the UL, Jeb Bradley seems to want to out do Donald Kreis in a given intellectual proposition (a few fries less than a current Happy Meal): In the week before the bill came up for Senate committee review, however, he issued a letter in opposition. The program as proposed called for payroll deductions except for …

The NH Senate Just Killed The Horrible, Awful, Family Medical Leave Bill (HB 628)

The NH State Senate just voted on HB628, the So-called Family Medical Leave Insurance Bill (FMLI). (For the Grok archive on HB628 look here and here.) It’s a bad bill, with bad mechanics, built to fail, and its only redeeming quality (and by that I mean if you happen to be a socialist Democrat tax and spender hell-bent on …

HB 628 Still Stinks and It’s Still Not Dead, So What’s Happening?

The House Finance Committee had a work session on the HB 628, which implements an income tax under cover of a scheme to provide “state-funded” Family Medical Leave Insurance (FMLI) for short-term disability coverage. The progressives on both sides just want the taxing authority and but their mule of choice is a fiscal and administrative disaster.

HB 628: Coos County Reps Vote to Tax Your Income.

By Kevin Craig I am dismayed that the entire Coös County delegation, both Democrat, and Republican, voted for an income tax on all non-public employees, via House Bill 628, the “Family Medical Leave Insurance” bill. The only exceptions were Robert Theberge, who voted nay, Bing Judd, who didn’t vote, and Edith Tucker, who was excused. …

Democrats “Improve” HB 628: They Cut The Benefit Time in Half and Hike the Income Tax by 34%

The New Hampshire Income Tax is not dead yet. Yes, the subcommittee recommended the bill as Inexpedient to Legislate (ITL), and odds are improving that the full committee will follow suit, but the subcommittee minority report included an amendment that is (presumably) meant to make the bill more “appealing” to the Republican majority committee and legislature. Or …

HB 628: You Can Opt-In (to Pay the Tax) Any Time You Like (But if You Didn’t Opt-Out) You Can Never Leave

By Chip Spangler Currently, HB 628 sits in the House Commerce and Consumer Affairs committee. This bill claims to be a government-run Family and Medical Leave insurance bill, but it is actually an income tax bill. The bill places a 0.5% tax on income for those who do not opt-out. The opt-out provision is deceptive at best, …
