Members of the public will have a chance to weigh in on the state's spending priorities at a pair of hearings Monday.

The House Finance Committee is hosting a public hearing on the state budget Monday at Derry Town Hall at 4:30. Another hearing gets underway at 5:30 at the Silver Center for the Arts at Plymouth State University.

This comes as House budget writers are in the process of revising Governor Chris Sununu's proposed $12.1 billion spending plan.

Sununu's proposed budget was dealt a blow last week when projected state tax revenues for the next biennium came in nearly $59 million below what the governor anticipated.

A third and final hearing on the budget will be held at the Statehouse next Monday.
