Gov. Chris Sununu on Thursday said spending by the state’s largest agency can be cut $25 million without employee layoffs or changes in critical services.
In a two-page letter to the Legislative Fiscal Committee, Sununu did not recommend any specific reductions in the Department of Health and Human Services budget, but identified six different categories of possible savings.
“The department will make these reductions while avoiding state employee layoffs and taking all efforts to ensure that there is no reduction in the current level of services provided to the citizens of New Hampshire,” Sununu wrote to Committee Chair Mary Jane Wallner, who also leads the House Finance Committee.
