Governor Maggie Hassan says strong fiscal management by state leaders and an improving economy have boosted the state's budget surplus to $76 million for fiscal year 2013.
That figure is $19 million more than the $57 million lawmakers had anticipated.
Hassan also said Friday that a monthly forecast shows the state currently running almost $27 million ahead for the 2014 fiscal year.
The state has a $10.7 billion budget for the current, two-year cycle.
