NHDP Statement on Governor Hassan’s Budget Address

Concord, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement on Governor Maggie Hassan’s budget address.
“Today, Governor Hassan presented a fiscally responsible plan that will lay the foundation of a new generation of economic growth, proving once again that Granite Staters are in good hands under the Governor’s strong bipartisan leadership.”
“The Governor’s budget will keep New Hampshire’s economy moving in the right direction by holding down the cost of higher education, keeping our roads safe, and maintaining the state’s commitment to our bipartisan health care expansion.” 
“While Republicans for years have used budgeting gimmicks to mislead the public about what they are actually funding, Governor Hassan’s budget is balanced honestly and responsibly.”
“Instead of resorting to their usual dishonest budget stunts and efforts to mislead voters about the Governor's common-sense problem solving, I call on Republicans in the legislature to return to a serious budget conversation and support this responsible, common-sense budget that will get results for our people, businesses and economy.”
