Talking about the budget last week, Gov. Chris Sununu told NHJournal he had drawn two lines in the sand: “I’m not going to raise taxes when we have a $200 million surplus, and I’m not going to sign a budget today that creates a structural deficit.”
On Tuesday, Democrats abandoned their demands for tax hikes and gave Sununu a budget that stayed inside the lines.
“The people of New Hampshire won today,” Governor Chris Sununu said in a statement. “This compromise budget does not increase taxes, and ensures financial promises can be kept to the people of New Hampshire. This budget is something I can support.”
