In one of his first interviews as a “B-tier” U.S. Senate candidate, New Hampshire Republican Chuck Morse confirmed he opposes critical investments to create Granite State jobs, fix roads and bridges, invest in clean water, and expand high-speed internet access.
During a Monday morning interview with New Hampshire Today, Morse said he opposes and would have voted against President Biden’s bipartisan infrastructure law — despite the law’s broad benefits for New Hampshire workers, families, and communities.
The federal bipartisan infrastructure law opposed by Morse is set to bring well “over a billion dollars” to New Hampshire — creating jobs and going toward “a wide variety of infrastructure, from bridges and sewage projects to airports and electric vehicle charging stations.”
The law, which has already begun funding Granite State airport improvement projects, will also provide “At least $100 million to expand broadband coverage to the small portions of the state where that service is currently not available.”
In contrast to Morse’s opposition to the law, U.S. Sens. Maggie Hassan and Jeanne Shaheen were instrumental in ensuring that the infrastructure law was passed and that it “deliver[s] for Granite Staters.”
Morse has not yet confirmed that he would vote to repeal Biden’s infrastructure law, if elected.
