House and Senate policy committees grappled Wednesday with a variety of bills to raise or rebrand state taxes.
State Rep. Skip Cleaver, D-Nashua, said public schools need more support from the state and that’s why he proposed a 4.3 percent sales tax on all electronic devices.
“We have schools that are struggling tremendously in large classrooms, canceling music, arts, etc. Some of our schools do very well where there is a high property tax base,” Cleaver told the House Ways and Means Committee Wednesday.
