CONCORD, NH - NHGOP Chairman Stephen Stepanek released the following statement regarding the Democrat committee of conference budget proposal:

“New Hampshire’s economy is booming and more people are employed in this state than ever before. The Democrat budget proposal coming out of the committee of conference will reverse our economic gains in the Granite State. Governor Chris Sununu provided budget negotiators a terrific and pragmatic roadmap to reach a budget compromise, yet they have fallen far short. No budget that increases the cost of doing business by reversing employer tax relief or one that creates a massive structural deficit is worthy of the Governor’s support; this budget does both. The people of New Hampshire will stand with Governor Sununu and Republicans in the State legislature as they fight for a responsible budget.”
