House Leaders’ Statements on Committee of Conference Budget Passage

CONCORD – House Republican Leaders issued statements following the affirmative vote of the State Senate and House of Representatives to send HB144 and HB517 to the governor’s desk for signature. The committee of conference report on HB144 received a 198-169 vote, and HB517 received a 212-161 vote on Thursday, after months of public input, review, and analysis by House and Senate budget writers.

House Speaker Shawn Jasper (R-Hudson):

“This is a budget the legislature and the people of New Hampshire can be proud of. This budget provides increased resources to address the opioid crisis, mental illness, domestic violence, and includes several reforms to state government while keeping spending in check. We’ve achieved a balance that ensures our citizens will have access to the services they need while reducing the tax burden. Members of the House and Senate have worked tirelessly on this budget, which in my opinion makes sense for our state, our communities, and our constituents.” (more…)
