New Hampshire lawmakers passed a two-year, nearly $13 billion compromise state budget Wednesday, ending three months of impasse after Republican Gov. Chris Sununu vetoed their first effort.

The House and Senate votes to pass the budget came just five days before a temporary spending plan was set to expire and were overwhelming in both chambers. The main spending bill passed the House 327-29, while the companion bill to make policy changes passed 316-40. In the Senate, the spending bill passed 24-0, with one senator, Republican Bob Giuda, voting against the trailer bill over funding for family planning services.
