More damage from budget veto

FURTHER CONSEQUENCES OF HASSAN’S RECKLESS BUDGET VETO
“Governor Hassan’s politically-motivated veto of the state budget, which included expected increases in funding for New Hampshire hospitals and mental health units, is putting unnecessary pressure on local emergency rooms and causing chaos in New Hampshire’s healthcare system. The most vulnerable Granite Staters are paying the price for the governor’s reckless budget veto and continued refusal to compromise. Instead of engaging in dishonest political rhetoric, Governor Hassan should focus her efforts on coming to a reasonable compromise with the Legislature to reverse the devastating impact of her budget veto.” – Jennifer Horn, NHGOP Chairman
