Dispatches From The Stump: Rep. Charlie Bass On The Economy

Today, 2nd District Congressman Charlie Bass did a bit of campaigning close to home.  He spoke at the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club meeting at Franklin Pierce University this morning.  It wasn’t a campaign event per se; Rotary International has strict rules about clubs not endorsing candidates, although politicians can address Rotary groups.  And so, Bass spent […]

Primary Crash Course: How GOP Gov. Candidates Say They Would Jump-Start The Economy

Next week, New Hampshire voters will decide who gets to run for governor this November.  And despite the fact that most states would envy our 5.4 percent unemployment rate, jobs and the economy are the issues driving the primary elections. StateImpact lays out the similarities–and differences–between the plans of the leading GOP candidates. Q: How […]

If Affordable Care Act Remains Intact, N.H.’s “One-Stop Shop” Will Be Run By Feds

Correction: In the last paragraph, the author initially referred to Alabama, rather than Louisiana, as a state that has not created a state-run health insurance exchange. Remember back in 2009 and 2010 when President Obama would talk about that “one-stop shop” piece of his health care bill, in which health insurance customers could go to […]

Executive Council Mulls Massive Medicaid Contract

The Executive Council is scheduled to vote tomorrow on a new Medicaid contract worth an estimated $2.2 billion–believed to be the largest contract in state history. But signs from an Executive Council meeting Monday suggest that vote may be pushed back.  And the state may struggle to meet its July 1 deadline. It’s a huge […]

Charting NH’s Incredible Shrinking Government

Two hallmarks of Republican legislative leadership these past couple of sessions have been a commitment to small government and the use of deep cuts to state government to bridge budget gaps. And now that the state’s released its dryly-titled “Comprehensive Annual Financial Report: For the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2011,” we can get our […]

Breaking Down Who Does–And Doesn’t–Support Eminent Domain For Northern Pass

Recently the Concord Monitor reported on a Granite State Poll commissioned by a key Northern Pass rival–the New England Power Generators Association.  The big news coming out of the study was 68 percent of the 500 respondents were against eminent domain for Northern Pass. But what interested us even more than the overarching sentiment toward […]

State Budget Cuts Hurt Health, Higher Education And Essential Services The Most

A look back at this year’s major state budget cuts shows who took the hardest hits in New Hampshire. As the Nashua Telegraph reports, with $1 billion slashed from the budget, more agencies than usual felt the effects. Republican legislators heralded the budget as a victory for smaller government, shaving more than $1 billion, or 11 […]

Part 3: Which NH Counties Won New Residents–And Lost Old Ones

One of our most popular drop-in series at StateImpact has been our county-by-county glimpses at migration rates.  Our work is based on  a map generated by Jon Bruner of Forbes.  (We still recommend you check it out.)  Using IRS data, Bruner traced where people in every county in the country were moving to–and from–between 2005 […]

How Defense Cuts Hurt New England Lobstermen–And Maybe Even Lowered Lobster Prices

Late last week, we posted a cool infographic, courtesy of the journalists at Stateline, taking a look at the percentage of each state’s GDP that’s made up by federal spending.  The group then subdivided federal spending into defense-related spending and everything else. All told, about 5 percent of the Granite State’s GDP comes from the […]

Leading Republicans Against Right-To-Work Can Keep Their Posts After All

Yesterday, we linked to a story on following-up on House Speaker William O’Brien’s latest attempt to overturn the governor’s veto of Right-to-Work legislation. A number of Republicans joined Democrats in opposition to the override during Wednesday’s vote. O’Brien ultimately lost his bid to institute Right-to-Work by seven votes. Then yesterday, Kevin Landrigan reported for […]
