CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan released the following statement today on the House’s bipartisan vote to pass SB 367:
“A solid, modern transportation infrastructure is the foundation for long-term economic growth, critical to the success of New Hampshire’s people and businesses. Today’s bipartisan vote to strengthen infrastructure investment reinforces that there is broad agreement about the need to take action, and I applaud the House of Representative for taking action to improve our roads and bridges.
“I also thank Senator Rausch for his bipartisan leadership, as well as the Business and Industry Association of New Hampshire, various chambers of commerce and other representatives of the business community across the state for their advocacy to support this important legislation.

I look forward to signing this bipartisan legislation into law so we can keep New Hampshire's economy moving forward by advancing critical road and bridge projects and finishing the long-overdue expansion of I-93.”
