Gov. Chris Sununu said it is premature to make any permanent budget adjustments although the state faces a projected $500 million to $700 million shortfall over the remainder of the biennium ending June 30 2021.

Speaking at a press conference Tuesday, Sununu said the next stimulus bill from Congress is expected to include money that could “backfill” at least some of the shortfall, which he said is likely to be about $150 million this fiscal year which ends in five weeks, and anywhere from $350 million to $500 million next fiscal year.
