Veterans Home Among Those Requesting Capital Funds
New Hampshire's Veterans Home is asking for $7 million for a third floor addition in the next capital budget — one of 150 projects submitted for consideration.
Veterans Home officials will make their pitch Tuesday at a hearing on the $227 million in spending requested by state agencies.
Gov. Maggie Hassan opened the two-days of hearings Monday with a warning that not all the projects will make the final cut next year when the governor and Legislature decide priorities. The capital budget approved last year was for $125 million from general tax funding.
Also Tuesday, the Community College System of New Hampshire will ask for more than $28 million for projects ranging from renovations to critical maintenance.
