So kids, what did we learn from Wednesday’s House Session (5/8/19)?

For one thing, we learned that the Canadian Consul General lacks any kind of manners since he came to OUR House and criticized our President’s trade policies in his speech to the House.

GrokTV Special Interview-NH State Senator Andy Sanborn (District 9) – Question 4: Administrative based taxes: have all taxes, fees, and fines set by the Legislature?
