As a business owner, I am disappointed in Gov. Chris Sununu’s veto of the state’s budget.
The budget passed by the Legislature provided more than $200 million in property tax relief. It ramped up job training and workforce development initiatives to attract and retain a skilled workforce and meet the skills gap. It invested in affordable and workforce housing, so needed for a reliable workforce. And it meaningfully dealt with our mental health crisis and our opioid epidemic, which is devastating the health of our workforce and our economy. In my view, this was a pro-business budget.
