NH STATE BUDGET, JUNE 18, 2019 LETTER TO THE EDITOR

Jun 18, 2019

Subject: NH 2019 proposed senate budget

Dear Editor:

Included in the NH senate budget:

-$100 million in additional education funding

-$ 40 million revenue distribution.

Senate district 24, (12 municipalities including Hampton) would get roughly $1.3 million back total, over 2 years.

-$ 60 million increase to medical provider rates. "for recruitment & retention in healthcare workforce. " More state bureaucracy expenses forever...

Is there any budget allocation for clean water or NH aging infrastructure? I am concerned , if any exists, that is probably not enough.

What about redistribution of rooms & meals? What about the supposed " catch up formula?"

What about millions transferred out of Hampton based state park's revenues annually?

I would argue this budget is "built on sticks," & not sustainable for the NH taxpayer. Also, this proposed budget includes more government suffocation, in my view.

A "joke" for NH hardworking taxpayers, I would also argue.
