Apparently, Vicki Schwaegler didn’t like the information I included in rejecting the Biomass veto effort

That would be here due to the news that she actively politicking on overriding Gov. Sununu’s veto override on SB 365 and SB 446 instead of recusing herself from the efforts due to her family’s landholding. I was told that she decided to run again (originally she wasn’t) in no small amount due to getting the …

Republican elected officials demanding overrides on SB 365 and 446 so that taxpayers have to pay more

So why are NH State Senators Bob Guida and Kevin Avard (among others, like Jeb Bradley – and hasn’t he monkey’d with our electrical enough to realize what a total hash he’s made of it?) throwing mains pillars of the Platform into a woodchipper? From the NH Constitution: [Art.] 2. [Natural Rights.] All men have certain …

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 …

Still No Mention of $4.2 Million in New Payroll Costs to Run FMLI

As the New Hampshire Senate prepares to vote (down) HB628 the effort to hide the purposeful expansion of government under cover of a lousy Family Medical Leave Insurance “plan” goes unreported. WMUR had an opportunity here but “opted out” which, by the way, is a lot easier when it comes to reporting on HB628 than it …

NH Dems Blame Koch Brothers for Sununu Refusing To Advance Undercover Tax Scheme

I think it’s kind of cute that the NH Democrats continue to pretend this had anything to do with offering Family Medical Leave Insurance (FMLI) to New Hampshire Families. Or that Governor Sununu would accept “FMLI” in any form the legislature coughed up. Here governor, sign this thing that happens to have family medical leave insurance in the …

NH House Votes To Meddle Further in Employee Employer Relationships

The New Hampshire House recently passed a bill that would prohibit employers from having use-it-or-lose-it vacation policies. Employers that provide vacation time can expect their employees to use it up within a certain time, after which they lose it.

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.

Is Gov. Sununu Going To Break His No Tax Pledge and Destroy the New Hampshire Advantage?

The Family Medical Leave Insurance bill (HB628) making it’s way through the New Hampshire House has a great many things wrong with it, not the least of which is that it not only taxes individual income, a division of state government we’ll never be able to opt out of has to be created to collect the …
