Concord - New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement applauding the House and Senate's work to keep the state budget balanced.
"I applaud Democrats in the House and Senate, and Governor Lynch, for their leadership in balancing the state budget without any new tax increases. Our Democratic majorities continue to be responsible stewards of the state budget during these difficult economic times.
"Although significant cuts were made, essential services New Hampshire's for most vulnerable citizens were protected.
"This is in stark contrast to the Republican leadership, who once again wasted taxpayer dollars playing childish political games and refused to propose real solutions to the serious challenges facing the Granite State. Their actions today are yet another reminder of why we can't afford a return to reckless Republican budgeting."
