Meanwhile, according to Barbara Reid, government financial advisor at the New Hampshire Municipal Association, most municipalities have already adopted budgets for this year, assuming certain levels of state aid.
“There is $40 million in the budget for municipal aid, unrestricted -- to be used for any purpose municipalities want – they can use it for property-tax relief, they can use it for roads, bridges, whatever," Reid said on The Exchange. "But without having the budget passed, that’s in limbo right now ”
“When it comes to the Governor's veto and his objection to suspending tax cuts, David Juvet, Senior Vice President of Public Policy for the N.H. Business and Industry Association said: "We didn't request that the Governor veto the budget over this. This is a decision he came to on his own."
