New Hampshire’s budget stalemate doesn’t appear to be ending anytime soon, after Gov. Maggie Hassan swiftly rejected a proposal from Republican legislative leaders Wednesday.
The proposal would fund a pay raise for state employees.
Governor Hassan called it a step forward that Republicans were willing to fully fund the state employees contract.
“And that is something that we can agree on,” she said, “but true compromise needs to be around the central issue here, and so far they haven’t done that.”
