Governor Chris Sununu Statement on HB 1817

Concord, NH - Today, Governor Sununu issued the following statement after the House and Senate adopted the Conference Committee report on HB 1817:

'I am incredibly proud that sound fiscal management, coupled with federal tax reform and state business tax cuts, has resulted in an anticipated revenue surplus for this year. In addition to carrying a significant amount into next year and adding to the rainy day fund, this surplus will give New Hampshire the opportunity to make critical and fiscally responsible investments using one time monies for one time expenditures, all while sending money directly to municipalities to repair roads and bridges in support of local taxpayers. I commend the legislature for passing House Bill 1817 today and look forward to signing the bill when it reaches my desk.'
