CACR 19 would ask voters if the NH Legislature should use your money for the reason that we gave when we took it from you. The NH House does not want to pass this bill. Here’s what they said:
The purpose for recommending Interim Study of CACR 19 is
to review the absolute prohibition of diverting dedicated funds and the effect upon the financial commitment
of the State of New Hampshire to programs and operations. Numerous financial problems were brought up
in committee discussions.
The first thing you need to know is that when a bill goes to Interim Study int he second year of a session, it is dead.
The second thing you need to know is that there is no “prohibition of diverting dedicated funds“. It simply says that a 2/3 vote is required. What does that mean? It means that the two parties in the NH Legislature will finally be forced to work together. It means that they can’t invent a crisis, steal the money, and then blame the other side. It means that bi-partisan government will finally work.
