PSU Hosts Forum on State Budget Shortfall and Its Impact on Human Services March 9

February 21st, 2011 by Adam

Those interested in learning more about the way that New Hampshire’s state budget is developed and what effects possible cuts could have on the Pemi-Baker region are encouraged to attend a community forum hosted by Center for Rural Partnerships and the NH Fiscal Policy Institute at Plymouth State University on Wednesday, March 9, 3:30 p.m., at the PSU Ice Rink and Welcome Center.

Jeff McLynch of the NH Fiscal Policy Institute will outline the history of New Hampshire’s legislative state budgeting process and the difficulties in funding state services. He will discuss the state’s tax structure, why the state faces a budget shortfall and what options the legislature has to address it now and in the future.

The governor and legislature are currently developing the next two-year budget and potential cuts to services will be felt locally.

The forum is free and is sponsored by NH Cares , an organization of human service providers focused on the need to maintain and strengthen the safety net for our most vulnerable citizens.
