NH GOP - On Gov. Lynch Spending Announcement

CONCORD – New Hampshire Republican Party Chairman Fergus Cullen released the following statement regarding today’s news that Gov. Lynch will seek to curb state spending.

NH GOP Chairman Fergus Cullen said, “Last year Gov. Lynch signed a budget that increased spending by 17.5%, while ignoring the warnings of Republican legislators who argued that his revenue estimates were unrealistically optimistic. The appropriate time for the Governor to consider fiscal restraint would have been before he created this impending crisis.”
