NH GOP - STATEMENT ON MET AGREEMENT

Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement concerning the committee of conference agreement on Senate Bill 369:

 

"Governor Hassan's continued reliance on the MET to counteract her reckless, wasteful spending habits has left Republicans with no choice but to pursue emergency measures in order to stave off a financial crisis in New Hampshire.  We applaud Republicans who worked to ensure an agreement that MET funds are only spent on healthcare.  However, Governor Hassan's incompetence regarding the state budget is inexcusable, and Granite State residents look forward to electing a responsible Republican who will get our financial house in order this fall."
