For a Republican Majority in the New Hampshire Senate

Senate Finance restores Renewable Energy Fund

Forrester- PurpleConcord, NH — Today the Senate Finance committee voted to restore the Renewable Energy Fund in keeping with the Senate’s prior actions of protecting dedicated funds.

“We are working hard to make sure dedicated funds, like the Renewable Energy Fund, are restored or maintained at a consistent level,” said Senate Finance chair Jeanie Forrester (R- Meredith). “Senate Republicans have led on the issue of maintaining the integrity of dedicated funds and the Senate has voted on several occasions, overwhelmingly, in support of this issue.”

“Today’s vote was an important step in working towards a budget that makes responsible spending decisions but also lives within our state’s means,” continued Forrester.

“We have heard from numerous small business owners in the energy industry that the Renewable Energy Fund serves an important role in their ability to be successful in the state,” said Senate Finance Vice-Chair Jerry Little (R-Weare), who also serves on the Energy and Natural Resources committee.

“Senate Republicans are committed to making New Hampshire’s small businesses a priority and by restoring the Renewable Energy Fund we will continue to meet their needs,” added Little.
