GOVERNOR'S BUDGET 2017

2017 Governor Sununu's Budget Reaction

New Hampshire is currently in a great financial position, with a large surplus and historically-high Rainy Day Fund thanks to the strong position left by Governor Hassan’s administration.

Today Governor Sununu said that he's in support of full-day kindergarten and funding for the developmentally disabled, but as we all know, the devil is in the details.

We should be concerned about the $500 million cut from state agency budget requests and what that could mean to the citizens of New Hampshire.

The Governor’s budget address made no mention of the successful NH Health Protection Program, leaving serious unanswered questions for the 50,000 Granite Staters who rely on the program for their health care coverage.

I remain committed to working with our Republican colleagues on bipartisan initiatives, and on supporting a fiscally responsible budget that makes needed investments in initiatives that benefit all Granite Staters.
