Republican Gov. Chris Sununu started his second term Thursday seeking bipartisan cooperation from the newly Democratic Legislature on several proposals, including welfare reform and providing tuition-free college degrees.
While the state’s last five Democratic governors faced Republican-led Legislatures for at least part of their tenures, Sununu is the first in modern history to be in the opposite situation. In his inaugural address, he told lawmakers to avoid using the upcoming state budget to further partisan agendas and, instead, focus on finding common ground.
