Senators Begin Finalizing 2-Year State Budget Proposal

Allegra Boverman


Senate budget writers are putting the final touches on their version of New Hampshire's next 2-year budget.

The Senate Ways and Means Committee meets Tuesday to finalize revenue projections for the next biennium. Those numbers will determine how much more money Senate budget writers have to spend than their House counterparts, who finalized their own $11.2 billion budget in April.

Meanwhile, members of the Senate Finance Committee are voting this week on how to spend the state's money. They have already voted to put money back in the state's renewable energy fund and change how much money public schools receive.

The Senate has until early June to vote on a final budget before entering negotiations with the House. The state's existing $10.7 billion budget ends June 30.
