Concord - New Hampshire Republican State Committee Chairman Jennifer Horn today released the following statement regarding Governor Hassan making New Hampshire history as the first governor to have their veto of the state budget overridden:
"The Legislature's unprecedented override of Governor Hassan's irresponsible veto of the state operating budget veto is not only an historic embarrassment but could have been easily prevented had the governor simply worked with legislative leadership in the first place. Unfortunately for Granite Staters, Governor Hassan has poisoned Concord with Washington-style gridlock and hyper-partisanship. It's time for the governor to come clean and admit that New Hampshire's summer of fiscal uncertainty could have been avoided had she put her own political ambition aside and worked across the aisle."
