NHDP Applauds Governor Hassan's Leadership to Secure Passage of Fiscally Responsible, Bipartisan Budget Deal





Concord, N.H. – New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement applauding Governor Hassan's leadership to secure passage of the fiscally responsible, bipartisan budget deal:
“Thanks to Governor Hassan’s strong bipartisan leadership, both parties were able to come together to pass a fiscally responsible budget that will build on our economic progress of the last two years and lay the foundation for a new generation of economic growth.”
“As the Republican Speaker of the House and House Majority Leader have made clear, this bipartisan plan includes the vast majority of the priorities laid out in the Governor’s budget proposal back in February including funding for mental health, combating substance misuse, economic development, and public safety. This fiscally responsible compromise also includes crucial safeguards to ensure that we can support these priorities for our people, businesses, and economy not only in the next budget, but also for years to come.”
“It’s unfortunate that because of Kelly Ayotte’s political meddling it took so long for Republicans in the legislature to finally come to the table and negotiate in good faith, and New Hampshire Democrats applaud the Governor’s tireless efforts to get a fiscally responsible deal done.”
