(June 22, 2015) - Last May, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire issued a Right to Know request of Governor Maggie Hassan's office regarding a taxpayer-funded trade trip she planned on taking to Turkey in June of 2014. Specifically, our organization wanted more information on how much the trip would cost taxpayers, especially due to the fact that only days prior to our request, she issued a travel ban on all out-of-state travel paid for out of the state's general fund. The Granite State was in the middle of a fiscal crisis at the time, and her executive order was in response to an anticipated budget shortfall.
