House Republican Alliance Response to SB 126

The House Republican Alliance response on the passage of SB 126,  also known as the Dealer Bill of Rights. ” This bill will protect our home town dealers from unreasonable demands from manufacturers for constant renovations and provides fair compensation for Warranty services provided. This measure will help all dealers and provide more choices for the New Hampshire consumers when they are purchasing an automobile or equipment.” said Rep. Pam Tucker- House Republican Alliance co-chair. “This bill will also eliminate a monopoly structure that requires all autos to be sold through a franchise in our state.  Right now, across the U.S. a consumer can buy a vehicle only through a dealership.  New Hampshire will be the first in the nation to allow a manufacturer to sell directly to the consumer if there is no dealership in the state.  It would create opportunities for those manufacturers, like Tesla, to open up for business in our state and create jobs.”


Teens Robbed of I-pod/Cell Phone


MANCHESTER, NH- On Monday, February 11, 2013, at about 6:30 PM, Manchester Police responded to a Clay Street address for a report of a robbery.  On arrival, they met with two 16 year old Manchester teens who reported they had been the victims of a robbery a short time earlier on Somerville Street, near Belmont Street.


According to the boys, they were walking in the area when they were approached by two men, one of whom demanded their belongings, indicating his companion had a gun, although no gun was observed.


One of the boys surrendered his I-pod Nano and Galaxy S3 cell phone and the men left.  They were last seen leaving the area as passengers in an older, dark colored 4-door sedan operated by a third individual who was possibly wearing a red sweatshirt.


The first suspect was described as a white male in his forties, about 6’3” tall with a slender build and dark “stubble” on his face.  He was last seen wearing a dark colored vest and a green “beanie” style hat.  The second man, alleged to have possessed a gun, was described as a clean-shaven white male in his forties with an average height and build.  He was last seen wearing a camouflage shirt and khaki pants.


Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Manchester Police Department at 668-8711.  Anonymous tips for cash rewards can be made through Manchester Crimeline at 624-4040 or online at
