State Sen. Bob Giuda is misguided if he thinks the answer to every problem is a bigger hammer.
The one he snuck into the Senate version of the New Hampshire operating budget ought to be removed from that bill.
Giuda and some big land developers don’t like the fact that they don’t always get their way with local planning and zoning boards.
