Concord, NH- House Republican Leader Richard Hinch (R-Merrimack) issued a statement relative to the approval by the Joint Legislative Committee on Administrative Rules of the work requirement in the New Hampshire Granite Advantage Healthcare program.

“We are very pleased that the committee came together on this vote, and that the work requirement will be moving forward towards implementation. This is the type of bipartisan agreement we need on a common sense issue,” Hinch said. “We are seeing too many attempts to unravel good public policy that came about through compromise during the last two years. With all the work and thought that has gone into this process, we need to ensure the work requirement is not watered down or repealed.”
