Mr. Bosse also noted that he is favor of lifting government regulations that have meant that no new gasoline refineries or nuclear power plants have been built in the U.S. in the last 20 years.
The current siting processes for such initiatives as transmission lines, power plants, refineries, and the like, are subject to litigation and seemingly endless appeals, he said.
“I’d like to see a stream-lined approach,” he said. “It’s time to free our struggling economy from the taxes, mandates, and overregulation that are slowing it down.” The candidate says that when questions are brought up about making new infrastructure investments, the answer cannot always be “no.”
Later that evening in Lancaster, the Republican candidate stopped in at a Coos County Republican Party meeting at the Lancaster Motor Inn where Mr. Bosse discussed his visit to the Groveton Fish and Game Club’s annual dinner, held at Emerson’s Outdoor Outfitters on Route 3. There, he said, he had focused on his strong support for upholding the real meaning of the Second Amendment, which, he said, is not about the right to hunt but the right to self-defense.
Mr. Bosse said he disagrees with those who would “regulate away our Constitutional rights.” Restricting the carrying of guns only “emboldens criminals,” he said. Mr. Bosse said he opposes making gun-free zones out of our National Parks.
