The New Hampshire legislature approved a two-year budget Wednesday authorizing the sale of up to $193.5 million in new money bonds and notes. The governor has said she will sign the budget.
The Senate approved the $10.7 billion budget 24-0 and the House approved it 337-18. The budget restores spending for the state's university and community college systems to allow them to freeze tuition. It allots money for economic development activities, increasing travel and tourism promotion and trade assistance for businesses. It also increases aid to cities and towns.
