CACR 1, the so-called Super Majority Legislation, will be voted on in the NH House this Wednesday.
Unfortunately, the House Ways and Means Committee has labeled CACR 1 as inexpedient to legislate (ITL), which means it will likely not pass the House on Wednesday.
This bill is a proposed Constitutional Amendment that would require a 3/5 majority vote of the legislature for ANY tax or fee increase. If approved by the House and Senate, CACR 1 would be placed on the ballot allowing YOU to have a say in how and if your taxes can be raised.
Not only will this bill give NH taxpayers a voice regarding tax increases but as we all know, restraining the legislature’s ability to tax also restricts their ability to increase spending.
