There's talk around the state house of increasing the gas tax in NH.
Gee lawmakers how much is enough or I any amount of tax ever enough for you?
Consider that in NH we pay the federal government
9 1/2 a gallon, then the state takes 38 1/2 cents a gallon on top of that. So NH drivers pay 48 cents a gallon in taxes now.
if you need more money reduce spending in your current budget. For example you could have everyone in state government pay toll , even the governor & judges. that would raise money for ya.
You could reduce the toll road mismanagers from 7 to 1.The state had one toll road administrator for 30 years it doesn't take 7 managers plus over paid staff offices, computers, cars, overhead to mismanage just 60 miles of toll roads.
then go through the state budget which has been growing unchecks for 40 years and cut back 10% of all staff overheads that have been added over the years.
NH doesn't need new taxes we really need better management of the size and cost of government.
Find the waste in the budget make cuts then you have money to waste on new spending.'
Or you could be like NYC NY they already tax everything and now propose a lap dancing tax.
I would go along with that provided the lap dancers don't look like our governor or some of our female law makers serving in Concord.
