NH Senate President’s Statement on Governor ’s Budget Veto

Concord, NH – Senate President Chuck Morse (R-Salem) released the following statement in response to Governor Hassan’s budget veto.

“I am extremely disappointed in Governor Hassan’s action to veto the budget because it blocks important funding increases that support state agencies and our state’s neediest citizens and creates uncertainty within these organizations. In addition, the veto puts on hold important business tax reductions that are designed to create jobs and stimulate New Hampshire’s business economy,” said Senate President Chuck Morse (R-Salem).

“The Governor’s budget veto shows that her priorities continue to be centered on narrow-minded special interests and not the good of New Hampshire citizens.”

“Although I still believe that a veto is unnecessary, the Continuing Resolution will keep State Government operating while we resume our work in order to produce a budget we can all agree on.”
