To The Daily Sun,
The Northern pass has been an issue with private land owners, environmental groups, National Forest, etc. I want to talk about the sad state that New Hampshire roads and bridges are in. Seems there is a state rep who wants to put a higher tax on gasoline to repair our roads. Aren't we taxed enough? Don't we pay enough for a gallon of gasoline? Again, our state reps and senators want to lay the burden of poor management on the taxpayers.
There is anywhere from 60 to 100 million dollars in revenue waiting for the DOT, it is the Northern Pass going underground along the state rights-of-way and abandoned railroad beds. When will the Statehouse wake up? The DOT already said that it's possible to go under state owned rights-of-way. The studies were done. Have you forgotten the 361 Commission? The surrounding states — NY, CT, VT, ME — all have the legislation for high voltage lines to go underground. Why is New Hampshire dragging their heels on this issue? Don't miss this opportunity the do what is right for New Hampshire and the people that put you in office.
