NH lawmakers to vote Wednesday on state employee pay raises, business tax cuts

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — The latest on New Hampshire lawmakers planning to vote on a budget deal, including tax cuts for businesses and a pay raise for state employees:

1:30 p.m.

New Hampshire lawmakers are preparing to vote on a compromise budget deal and a host of other bills vetoed by Gov. Maggie Hassan.

The deal begins in the Senate and will then move onto the House, where a number of Republicans are trying to thwart its passage. If it passes both chambers, Hassan will then ask Democrats to join Republicans in overriding her budget veto so the spending plan can take effect.

The deal comes three months after Hassan vetoed the Legislature's $11.3 billion spending plan, largely over business tax cuts. The tax cuts are included in the final deal, but are contingent in part upon state revenues hitting a certain target. The deal also includes a pay raise for state employees that lawmakers removed from Hassan's initial budget proposal.
