In 2014, then-Governor Maggie Hassan signed the first increase in the New Hampshire gas tax in 23 years – a $30 million hike. Watch Hassan signing the tax increase here.
Hassan’s flip-flop on the gas tax is conveniently timed in an election year, as she finds herself with floundering poll numbers and weighed down by an unpopular President whose agenda has caused inflation to impact Americans of all income levels.
“Maggie Hassan is changing her tune on the gas tax now that she’s a vulnerable Senator who reliably supports Washington Democrats’ agenda. This is a transparent political stunt that does nothing to absolve Hassan for her free-spending votes that caused the prices of goods to reach record highs in the first place.” -SLF Communications Director Jack Pandol
