NH House Speaker Shawn N. Jasper statement following passage of both HB-1A and HB 2-FN-A-L by the NH House

“I was confident from the first day that I became speaker that Republicans would coalesce and come together on the important issues and today is a good example of that.  When it came to issues that matter  the most to Republicans and their constituents we were able to work together and successfully come up with a budget that we can now send over to the Senate.  In the 11 budgets that I have voted on during my time in the legislature I have never seen one that is perfect and today’s budget is no different.  We look forward to what the Senate now does with this budget and will be ready to work with them during the committees of conference.”
