In the current Sunacom.com, Senator Odell writes:
'New Hampshire fortunately has a requirement that our biennial budget must be balanced.' '...if all goes well, we will have a compromise budget that can be accepted by the House and Senate.'
'[Governor Hassan] has not said where she stands on an increase in the gas tax to fund construction and maintenance of roads and bridges.'
'Most pundits think the Governor will favor the licensing of one casino.' 'The House under Democrat and Republican leadership has always turned down bills to create casinos.'
'The economy is anemic and will not produce large increases in funds from current revenue streams.'
'Without doing anything, the increased revenue from growth, $90 million, is halved or more by acts of the previous legislature.'
