Gov. Hassan Asks Agencies For Conservative Budget Proposals
New Hampshire Gov. Maggie Hassan has sent state agencies a letter asking them to submit conservative budget proposals that keep spending increases at a minimum for fiscal years 2016-2017.
The letter includes a request for agencies to submit proposals for improving their efficiency and effectiveness. The instructions were included as part of the state's biennial budget manual, which was delivered in training sessions Wednesday.
Under state law, agencies are required to submit a maintenance budget that represents the cost of continuing business, and a change budget that incorporates new costs.
Proposals are due to the governor's office by Dec. 1.
