Governor Chris Sununu Statement on Budget Victory
Concord, NH – Today, Governor Chris Sununu issued the following statement after The New Hampshire House voted to concur with The New Hampshire Senate's version of HB 1 and HB 2 – the first time in modern history, bypassing a Committee of Conference:
"This budget is a win for kids, families, taxpayers, state employees, and the entire state of New Hampshire," said Governor Chris Sununu. "I would like to thank Speaker Sherm Packard, Majority Leader Jason Osborne, Senate President Jeb Bradley, Senate Minority Leader Donna Soucy, and House Minority Leader Matt Wilhelm for working together to get this budget across the finish line. The budget includes the largest pay raise for our state employees in decades, increases investments into our rainy day fund and education trust fund, and sends back historic relief to municipalities to lower property taxes – all while cutting taxes."
