Governor Still Has Not Provided Information For HB2
CONCORD – The New Hampshire Republican State Committee today called on Governor Maggie Hassan to release important budget documents that she is withholding from the Legislature.
“Governor Hassan needs to immediately release every budget document that is required by New Hampshire law so that the Legislature can fully examine her fiscally irresponsible proposal,” said NHGOP Chairman Jennifer Horn. “The governor has already started out the budget process on shaky ground by relying on $80 million dollars in non-existent casino licensing revenue to balance New Hampshire’s books. Her unwillingness to meet deadlines and provide basic documents for her proposal is raising serious questions about her weak leadership and feeble fiscal stewardship that must be addressed.”
According to Union Leader Columnist Charlie Arlinghaus (2/20/13), the governor has not released critical documents that will become the House Bill 2 component of the state budget. Governor Hassan was required by New Hampshire law to submit these documents by February 15 (RSA 9:3 III.)
