Governor Hassan Statement on Committee of Conference Approval of MET Legislation

CONCORD – Following bipartisan approval from Committee of Conference of legislation reflecting the Medicaid Enhancement Tax agreement with 25 New Hampshire hospitals, Governor Maggie Hassan released the following statement:

"This agreement is fair to the hospitals and to New Hampshire taxpayers, bringing stability to our budget while ensuring that our hospitals and the state can continue to provide critical health services to our people. I thank Senator Odell, Representative Wallner and the Committee of Conference for their efforts on this legislation, as well as our health care providers, legislative leaders and other stakeholders for their work on the agreement. I encourage the full Legislature to vote in favor of this important measure to protect our budget and the health and well-being of Granite Staters."
