NH Sen. Jeb Bradley, R-Wolfeboro, called it a “big ask.” But it turns out that Senate Bill 15 wasn’t a hard sell at all.
His bill calls for allocating $10 million up front and, starting in October, $5 million a year from the real estate transfer tax, to go to a dedicated fund to support affordable housing projects.
The senator told the Senate Finance Committee that the funding “is for the well-being of the state that people can afford to live in New Hampshire.”
