Dear Senator Morse,
I was disappointed to learn that you have sponsored legislation to prohibit the sale of certain fireworks (HB 0336).
You are Republican who was elected to reduce market regulation and defend free market capitalism. Why in God's name are you trying to legislate the way American patriots celebrate Independence Day?
Furthermore, you are the senator of a state border district and there are a relatively high number of Mom-and-Pop fireworks shop owners among your constituents.
Please preserve the New Hampshire Advantage and consider their interests as this legislative session goes on.
Unfortunately it is difficult for responsible individuals with full-time jobs such as myself to to drive up to Concord during the middle of a weekday demand you do your job.
For those of you who can make it to the statehouse to testify against Senator Morse's proposed regulation, the House Criminal Justice and Public Safety Committee is meeting Tuesday at 2 p.m. in the Legislative Office Building (LOB) Room 204.
Go out in a bang,
Shem Kellogg, Plaistow
