CONCORD – State Sen. Cindy Rosenwald, D-Nashua, introduced the Restaurant Relief Act of 2021 to the Senate Ways and Means Committee.
If enacted, the Restaurant Relief Act of 2021 would temporarily change the operator compensation under the meals and rooms tax from 3 to 5 percent.
“For nearly a year, our restaurants have been fighting for survival,” Rosenwald said. “Thousands of workers have been laid off temporarily or permanently as revenues have plummeted. The Restaurant Relief Act of 2021 puts money back into the pockets of our restaurants, thereby saving thousands of jobs across the state, without long term financial consequences.”
She urged her colleagues to support SB 128 so restaurants can begin to work towards recovery and a more prosperous future.
