Budget deficit needs immediate action

Stephen, John
January 2011
New Hampshire Business Review;1/14/2011, Vol. 33 Issue 1, p15
The author offers his opinion on New Hampshire's budget deficit. He states that the state's representatives should start focusing on the growing budget deficit which is more than 100 million dollars. He comments on the move of the House and the Senate which he thinks has not helped alleviate the state's predicament. He notes that the same old principles should not be applied, and New Hampshire must get back to the values of limited government, less spending, and more economic prosperity.
