Governor: Legislature Should Provide Funding for LCHIP This Year

From the Office of Governor John Lynch

Gov. John Lynch released the following statement today on the Senate Finance Committee's vote to remove funding for LCHIP from HB 1167:

" New Hampshire is growing rapidly. We must act now to protect our state's open spaces and historic treasures before it is too late. The House has already expressed its strong support for the Land and Community Heritage Investment Program. I intend to work closely with both House and Senate leaders as we reconcile spending priorities, and to work to pass additional funding for LCHIP this year. "
