Republican Gov. Chris Sununu reached a budget compromise with Democratic legislative leaders Tuesday afternoon, according to a news release from the governor’s office, ending a three-month stalemate.
The $12.96 billion budget includes several tweaks from the Legislature’s initial $13 billion proposal — both in cuts and increases — as well as new items, such as raising the tobacco age from 18 to 19.
