CONCORD – Today, Senate Republicans voted ought to pass with amendment down party lines on SB 52. If signed into law SB 52, relative to city charter provisions for tax caps, would limit the ability of cities and towns to make spending decisions at the local level.


After the vote, Senator Rebecca Perkins Kwoka (D-Portsmouth) issued the following statement:


“SB 52 is a misguided piece of legislation that does not have the support of the very city it claims to help. This bill creates a real public safety concern as it could trigger drastic cuts to critical services, including education, law enforcement, and emergency services. We should not be passing statewide policy to solve one local problem, particularly when that policy risks public safety.”
