Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding the Legislature's historic override of Governor Hassan's reckless budget veto:
"We congratulate the Legislature on acting responsibly by overriding Governor Hassan's reckless veto of the state operating budget. Granite Staters can breathe a sigh of relief that despite Governor Hassan's disastrous budget veto, New Hampshire finally has a budget that will grow the economy, help attract new businesses and fund important state services including substance abuse prevention, education and infrastructure.
"After inflicting pain and suffering on the State of New Hampshire, Governor Hassan has been humbled by her embarrassing request to override her reckless veto. Governor Hassan's historic budget flip-flop is unprecedented, and New Hampshire won't forget the months of unnecessary fiscal uncertainty created by her politically-motivated budget veto. The governor can't hide the fact that she held critical funding increases hostage to her political ambitions and has brought Washington-style gridlock and hyper-partisanship to Concord."
