Governor Hassan Vetoes Budget
(June 25, 2015) - Derek Dufresne, spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement in response to Governor Maggie Hassan's budget veto:
"The budget passed by New Hampshire's House and Senate was a fair proposal that funded our state's priorities while keeping taxes and spending low. Regrettably, in the mold of many Washington politicians, she has proven once again that she refuses to embrace new ideas on how to grow our economy.
"Granite Staters deserve a hardworking governor who puts their families and small businesses first. Instead, they have a partisan Washington puppet who would rather veto a budget that moves New Hampshire forward in order to energize her liberal base as she looks towards the next step in her own political career."
