As the clock struck midnight Thursday, the Senate finished a marathon session after some contentious debate producing a $13 billion two-year budget they hope Gov. Sununu won’t veto, and as expected it was praised or condemned along party lines on Friday.
Sununu released a statement: “I continue to have concerns with the Senate’s budget. Namely, the income tax, the increase to business taxes, and the $76M structural deficit.”
Sununu said he hoped the House and Senate can come together in a Committee of Conference “to put forward a viable, balanced budget that does not raise taxes. The people of New Hampshire sent us to Concord to deliver a responsible budget, and I am committed to doing just that.”
