Gov. Sununu did not weigh the consequences of his veto for the people of New Hampshire. His veto hurts all the people – those struggling with health challenges, families in crisis, school districts with inadequate resources, state revenue sharing funds going to cities and towns (for the first time in a decade), people trying to keep up with property tax payments.
The governor’s veto hurts businesses. Businesses will not get the reforms they wanted and received in the vetoed budget. These reforms conformed state tax laws with the federal tax code and prevented double taxation on services performed in New Hampshire for out-of-state clients.
The governor is not working for the people but for himself, hoping to build a record to propel himself into federal office. No thanks, governor. Do your job for all New Hampshire people.
