New Hampshire’s proposed ski ticket tax has been voted inexpedient to legislate by an overwhelming majority of the House. The Thursday vote on HB1652 means the propose 9% tax on ski area tickets is dead. The final roll call was a vote of 323 against 7 to kill the bill. The controversial measure proposed last year wanted to create a 9% tax on ski area tickets in order to fund education funds and scholarships in the State of New Hampshire. The bill died alongside a proposed tax on electronic devices in the state to fund education. That bill, HB1492, was voted inexpedient to legislate by a vote of 320 to 11.
