Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding Democrat Senator Jeanne Dietsch's income tax proposal:

“New Hampshire Democrats have sponsored a 6.2% income tax on families across the state. Senator Jeanne Dietsch made it clear in a press interview that she believes this massive income tax is “almost a painless way to raise revenue”. This proposed Democrat income tax would be higher than that of Massachusetts - an absolutely unacceptable assault on New Hampshire’s economy. This will wipe out the New Hampshire Advantage and put Granite State families in significant hardship. Republicans in the legislature will strongly oppose this legislation and Governor Sununu has made it clear - Republicans will never support an income tax in New Hampshire. Not now, not ever.”
