The Budget

A guest blog entry from Jay Smith, MD, MPH - Policy Committee C0-Chair

It's incredibly draining to think about the consequences of the budget that the NH House just passed.  There are so many things that are wrong about it that I don't know where to begin.  We all need to pitch in now and convince the NH Senate to change things.  That won't be easy and everyone will need to contact their own Senator about the things that they care most about and that they can detail the consequences of going along with the House's insanity.  While the House finance committee budget proposal was changed slightly on the House floor on April 1st, the terrible cuts to Health and Human Services outlined in the link below were not reversed as all the amendments failed that would have put funds back in.  Look at the analysis by the NH Fiscal Policy Institute for details of what the House finance committee passed budget would do.
