The topics for discussion stayed within the realm of economic policy and job creation and energy policy was among the stickier points.</p><p>Much of the debate between Congressman Frank Guinta and former Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter was an argument of who should and should not receive federal tax dollars. This was highlighted when the candidates were asked how they would address the rising cost of energy.</p> Mon, 17 Sep 2012 21:00:15 +0000 Ryan Lessard 13064 at http://nhpr.org 1st District Congressional Candidates Square Off New Hampshire Congressional Delegation Reflects on Year http://nhpr.org/post/new-hampshire-congressional-delegation-reflects-year <p>Congress&nbsp;broke&nbsp;a&nbsp;record this&nbsp;year, but hitting the lowest approval rating of all time isn&rsquo;t what the&nbsp;region&rsquo;s lawmakers had hoped to accomplish.<br /><br /> Correspondent Matt Laslo talked with the New Hampshire congressional delegation and has a look back at this year&rsquo;s wild ride&nbsp;in&nbsp;Washington.</p> Thu, 29 Dec 2011 20:41:31 +0000 Matt Laslo 1151 at http://nhpr.org New Hampshire Congressional Delegation Reflects on Year
