CONCORD — With more time and money at their disposal, Senate budget writers are crafting a two-year state spending plan that restores many of the cuts made by their House counterparts.
The Senate Finance Committee is sharpening its budget plan and will send a final version to the full chamber June 4. Final spending numbers in the Senate plan haven't been tallied, making it hard to compare to the House's $11.2 billion plan or see how the plan is balancing. Senators have at least $118 million more to spend than the House based on updated revenue estimates.
Among the changes in the Senate's version: More money for higher education, tourism and health services, changes to transportation funding and variations in public school funding.
