The regular legislative calendar may be coming to an end, but work is far from done for New Hampshire lawmakers and Gov. Maggie Hassan.

A timeline for continuing work on the budget hasn't been finalized, but members of the Senate Finance Committee will gather Tuesday for a work session. The Joint Legislative Fiscal Committee will also meet monthly through the summer, as is standard practice, and will take on the task of approving emergency funding requests necessary with the short-term budget in place.

Unrelated to the budget, various study committees will gather through the summer on a variety of issues.

The Legislature is likely to return at least once this summer to vote on whether to override Hassan's veto of the budget and a number other bills.
