If you are interested in looking at New Hampshire’s budget as it compares to other states, you should check out this link.  While this comparison looks at 2013 and 2014, it gives a real insight into NH’s resources and uses of its budget.   This information is compiled by Ballotpedia -- an online collaborative encyclopedia which is sponsored by the Lucy Burns Institute, a Madison-based 501(c)(3 ) nonprofit organization dedicated to freedom on information.  Below is an excerpt from that site, as well as a link to the total article:    http://ballotpedia.org/New_Hampshire_state_budget_and_finances
