CONCORD (AP) — The Senate budget panel has wrapped up work on the chamber’s version of a $10.7 billion budget for New Hampshire for the two years beginning July 1.
The Finance Committee voted yesterday 4-2 along party lines to recommend passing the budget. The two Democrats voted against the budget.
Senate Democratic Leader Sylvia Larsen said several times as the plan was being assembled that the Republicans who control the committee made spending choices based on not accepting revenue the House proposed.
Committee Chairman Chuck Morse, a Salem Republican, called it a good budget and said spending differences will be debated on June 6 on the Senate floor.
Once the Senate passes the budget, the House and Senate will negotiate a compromise.
