Concord, NH- House Majority Leader Jason Osborne (R-Auburn) released the following statement following the publication of the CATO Institute’s Freedom in the 50 States rankings which placed New Hampshire as the freest state in the Union.
“In 1945, New Hampshire adopted our state motto ‘Live Free or Die,’ as a constant reminder of the utmost importance of our rights. This phrase epitomizes New Hampshire’s commitment to freedom and individual liberty, so it should be no surprise that we are the national leader in empowering individuals to embrace the unalienable rights that we are endowed with.”
“Last year, we made significant achievements in advancing the freedoms of Granite Staters. We empowered parents to make the best educational choices for their children by passing Education Freedom Accounts. We cut over $170 million in taxes and put money back in the pockets of all Granite Staters. Even with this progress, there is always more work to be done. In 2022, House Republicans will continue to expand individual liberties, fight an intrusive and overreaching federal government, and protect the New Hampshire Advantage.”
