NH House approves 2-year budget

With a vote that practically followed party lines, the House has approved an 11-billion-dollar budget.  There’s a 10-percent increase in all funds, with a four-percent increase in state general fund spending.  It’s very much like the proposed budget by Governor Maggie Hassan, but without 80-million in casino licensing fees, and less money for the University System of New Hampshire, charter schools, hospitals and school building aid.  Supporters say the two-year operating budget begins to restore programs cut two years ago, but opponents say it significantly expands government.
