House Democrats Blast Decision By Republicans on House Finance Committee to Rewrite Budget Behind Closed Doors  

CONCORD, NH – Representative Mary Jane Wallner, Ranking Democrat on the House Finance Committee and former Finance Committee Chair, released the following statement on the decision by Republicans on the House Finance Committee to rewrite the budget behind closed doors:

“It’s clear that the disastrous House Republican budget process has completely broken down. It now appears that HB1 and HB2, which already contained unacceptable cuts to critical economic priorities, are being rewritten behind closed doors.”

“If House Republicans intend to make even deeper cuts that will take our economy backward, they should do it at committee meetings in the light of day and put the budget process back on track the way it has always worked.”
