House Majority Leader Statement on Passage of House Budget

Posted by on Apr 1, 2015 in Press Releases | 0 comments

CONCORD – House Majority Leader Jack Flanagan (R-Brookline) offered the following statement relative to the House vote on HB1 and HB2, as amended. The budget bills passed by majority roll call vote, 212-161 (HB1) and 194-179 (HB2).

House Majority Leader Jack Flanagan (R-Brookline)

“The House Finance committee did a tremendous job working through the intricacies of state government to identify what we could afford with the revenues we have. In the end we have a fiscally responsible budget that will ensure state government continues to meet the needs of our population, and provide services to those most in need. Republicans were elected to majorities in the legislature, in part, to hold the line on spending, slow the growth of government, and stop new or increased taxes. This House budget achieves those objectives. House Republicans stood united in support of our core principles.”

CONCORD – House Majority Leader Jack Flanagan (R-Brookline) offered the following statement relative to House Finance Committee action on HB1 and HB2, the state budget bills. After weeks of negotiations, the committee adopted several amendments to the Governor’s original proposal, and by a vote of 15-11 (HB1) and 15-10 (HB2) recommend to the full House that the bills ought to pass.

House Majority Leader Jack Flanagan (R-Brookline)

“The budget process is never easy and I commend the Finance committee for all of their hard work and appreciate the tough decisions they had to make throughout this process. I believe the final product is something Republicans will stand by as a fiscally responsible, balanced budget that does not raise taxes and slows the growth of government.”

“Republicans were elected to a majority in the House in part to ensure that our state lives within its means. Therefore the Finance committee did what they could with existing revenue. Spending was prioritized to ensure our state’s most vulnerable citizens continue to receive essential services and our state government will continue to meet the needs of its citizens.”
