Speaker Applauds Passage of Municipal Bridge Aid and Block Grant Aid as Part of SB401

Speaker Applauds Passage of Municipal Bridge Aid and Block Grant Aid as Part of SB401 House Speaker Sherman Packard (R-Londonderry) responds to aid estimates from the New Hampshire Department of Transportation relative to municipal bridge aid and block grant aid as part of SB401:
 “Local infrastructure aid is immensely important for our local economies and having the state step in to help offset these costs to cities and towns will help alleviate the burden of these projects on local taxpayers. This $66 million investment will help ensure all communities get the resources needed to improve upon and strengthen their local roads and bridges. This municipal aid package is another example of Republican leadership on returning money to cities and towns to help offset costs and provide property tax relief.”  
House Approves Aid to Municipalities Rep. Terry Roy (R-Deerfield) released the following statement after the NH House passed SB401, making appropriations to the department of transportation for local highway aid and to the body-worn and dashboard camera fund, and permitting the department of transportation to operate dash cameras, on a voice vote.
 “SB401 is further evidence that Republicans in the legislature are living up to campaign promises. By sending our municipalities over $60 million dollars, towns can address much needed road and bridge construction while delivering much needed property tax relief to our constituents. State revenues have been coming in higher than anticipated as a result of responsible policies from the legislature, and the passage of this bill allows us to send some of those funds back to the taxpayer.”
