John Lynch on Budget & Economy

Democratic NH Governor

Proposes budget that cuts programs and doesn't raise taxes

I present a balanced budget for 2012 and 2013. It is a budget that protects our state's strategy for success, keeping taxes low and making smart investments in education, health care, public safety and economic development. This budget cuts programs, facilities, and positions. This budget spends $160 million--or 5.5 percent--less than the state spent in general funds in 2008-2009. The budget does not raise or create taxes.

I erased a major budget deficit without new taxes

I worked with both parties in the legislature to erase a major budget deficit, without new taxes, while still investing in what’s important - education, health care and job creation. I will continue to bring that same fiscally responsible approach to state government, looking at all our priorities as a state and making sure we are meeting them as efficiently as possible. That includes continuing to strengthen our commitment to education, preserving open space, and protecting public health and safety.
