CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan today issued the following statement on April revenues:
"While preliminary estimates indicate that state revenues remain above plan for the fiscal year to date, April's initial revenue report reinforces that we must continue our efforts to promote economic growth while carefully managing the state budget.
"State agencies remain focused on meeting all budget targets and increasing efficiency in order to protect taxpayer dollars. We also are continuing to work with all stakeholders to address the fiscal and legal challenges posed by the MET ruling, as well as to improve our long-term financial standing by strengthening the state's Rainy Day Fund.
"By working together, I know that we can resolve these challenges, build on the bipartisan progress that we have made and keep New Hampshire's economy moving forward."
