Concord, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding the committees of conference formed for House Bills 1 & 2:

“Before the negotiations have even begun, Democrats have made this a completely partisan process by excluding Republicans from the committees of conference on HB1 & HB2. Democrats claim they are interested in working across the aisle and building a budget that gets the job done, but instead they are playing petty political games. This exclusion of Republicans from serving as a member or alternate on the committee of conference silences the many parts of our state represented by the Republican caucus. By stacking the committee at this stage of the process, they are showing no signs of wanting to compromise to craft a budget that works for all of New Hampshire.”
