Chris Sununu on Environment
Be smart about environmental policy: look at economics
Whether it's solar, or wind, or battery storage, we need to ensure that the benefits of these well-intentioned programs deliver results to the people who are struggling to pay the bill each month.
We don't need to further raise electricity rates and
tax our citizens to be good environmental stewards, we just need to be smarter about how we spend the money we have. We must look at the environmental, economic, and social aspect of any policy.

Fund asbestos cleanup, and clean water infrastructure
Schools with health and safety issues in towns that might not be able to otherwise address things like asbestos, lead paint, or other critical safety issues and these are where our school building aid will be targeted and funded.
One of the other critical areas of public health and safety that this administration is making a priority is drinking water. There is no bigger public trust than every time we as citizens turn on that faucet.
We trust that our government has done their job in ensuring clean water for us and our children.
New Hampshire has protected the Drinking Water and Groundwater Trust Fund.
This fund of nearly $300 Million stands ready to be invested in vital infrastructure improvements across the state. Funds that can now be used in partnership with local communities to secure one of our most precious resources.
