Position on Issues

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should NH add a broad-based sales tax?

"The current system for funding of public education relies too heavily on local property taxes, which is a fundamentally unfair system that places too heavy a burden on many residents. An open inquiry into alternative funding methods is essential to the future of the state."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire lower business taxes?

"Although I generally do not favor lowering business taxes, there are some specific business taxes that hurt small businesses, and need to be changed. Taxes on large corporations, particularly out-of-state corporations, should not be reduced."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire raise the minimum wage?

"NH currently has no minimum wage, and instead relies on the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour, which has not increased since 2009. We need to raise the minimum wage in order to attract young families and keep them in NH, and to be competitive with neighboring states."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should NH pass stricter gun control laws?

"There are some gun safety measures that I would favor, such as universal background checks with no loopholes, and red flag laws allowing family members and law enforcement to seek emergency protective orders when there is an imminent threat of gun violence."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Should New Hampshire extend the renewable portfolio standard past 2025, requiring public utilities to obtain more than 25% of electricity from renewable energy sources?
"This is something that is beneficial from an environmental point of view and is also good for business."

Do you support the option of mail-in ballots for all voters, not just absentees?

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2018

Should New Hampshire ban abortions during the second trimester (e.g. after 15 weeks gestation)?

When asked about a ban on abortion after 24 weeks gestation on the 2020 Citizens Count issue survey, Larson wrote, "I believe abortion is a personal decision that should be left to a woman and her doctor. Policies encouraging availability and use of contraceptives should be supported, as they would reduce the likelihood of abortion." However, when asked about an abortion ban after 20 weeks on the 2018 Citizens Count issue survey, Larson wrote, "I think the 20-week standard would be acceptable if the exceptions are adequate."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2020

Do you support the “Education Freedom Account” program, which gives students access to the per-pupil share of state school funding to spend on private school or home school expenses?

On the 2020 Citizens Count issue survey, Larson indicated she was "against" New Hampshire allocating tax revenues for private and home schooling costs. She wrote, "Every tax dollar that goes towards home schooling or private schools takes money away from public education, which is fundamental to the health of our economy and our state."

Citizens Count Issue Survey, 2022

Do you support the state’s current system of public school funding, with each district’s total funding primarily dependent on local property tax revenue?
