At First Glance, A Growing Budget

10 Feb 2017

There are many things not yet known about Governor Sununu’s proposed budget. Although the Governor released his specific spending plan ahead of the February 15 deadline set in State law, he is not required to release the companion bill, commonly called House Bill 2 or the “Trailer Bill,” by the same deadline. This bill also requires the time and attention of the Office of Legislative Services, which transforms policy proposals into formal legislation. House Bill 2 will likely include more details regarding Governor Sununu’s proposed restructuring of two State agencies, targeted State aid for full-day kindergarten, and other policy initiatives not solely related to adding and subtracting funding from budget lines.
