[03/29/2014] IMPORTANT INFORMATIONIMPORTANT INFORMATION ON NH SB333 HEARING
Support for NH RVers and Campground Owners
Let's do what we can to help our friends in New Hampshire
Gregg Pitman, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Campground Owner's Association is requesting support from our RVing community this morning.
I understand that this does not impact many of you, but this type of legislation could become more commonplace as states continue to struggle financially and look for new ways to tax consumers and businesses.
If you have friends, or relatives in New Hampshire, please make them aware of this legislation and ask for their support of NH SB333 and the upcoming hearing on Tuesday, April 1 at 2:00PM.
Here's is the message from Gregg this morning:
Can you please help us to get the word out through your connections about the SB333 Hearing on Tuesday, April 1st.
SB333 is no longer the “slam dunk” that many thought it would be after our success in the NH Senate.
The opposition to our bill SB333, to exempt RVs in campgrounds from real estate taxes, grows stronger and louder as the city of Laconia sounds the alarm. Laconia does not want to lose 10 million of assessed value on these RVs with tax revenue of over $200,000. Even with our amendment which would only exempt RVs under 8’ 6” in width and retain over 65% of this property as taxable, Laconia wants to retain 100%. Towns like South Hampton, Haverhill and Bristol have also voiced opposition to SB333. Our amendment will helped in some of these situations to minimize the impact on these towns.
We will need to have a strong showing on Tuesday at 2 PM and have people sign in support of the bill (look for the “blue sheet”). Our members and their campers need to show their SUPPORT for SB333. Our NH Representatives MUST hear how important this legislation is to the vitality of the camping industry in NH. Our seasonal campers have wheels under them and can just as easily roll to another state.
