HOUSE FINANCE COMMITTEE HEARS TESTIMONY ON GOVERNOR’S BUDGET PROPOSAL

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – Today, the House Finance Committee is hearing testimony from people all over New Hampshire on the proposed state budget. Rep. Mary Jane Wallner (D-Concord) released the following statement:

“Today the House Finance committee will hear Granite Staters explain how the state budget impacts their daily lives. From the roads we all drive on, quality of our schools, mental health services, child protection, and support for our small businesses, the state budget impacts us all. Two years ago, House Democrats fought for and delivered a record increase in direct support to communities statewide. We made historic investments in public education and mental health services, funding critical areas while also relieving the burden on property taxpayers. Unfortunately, Governor Sununu’s proposed budget underfunds important programs and the House GOP has shown no desire to continue the support to communities prioritized by Democrats last term. Bottom line – the Governor’s budget will increase property taxes.”
