CONCORD, N.H.—The public will get its chance this week to tell the Senate what it thinks of the $10.2 billion spending plan the New Hampshire House approved.

The Senate Finance Committee is holding a public hearing Thursday afternoon and evening on the House’s version of the budget for the two years beginning July 1. The committee has been meeting with agency heads who have been outlining problems they face from spending cuts in the House budget.

Finance Chairman Chuck Morse of Salem has cautioned they should not expect the Senate to restore the $500 million the House has cut from Gov. John Lynch’s budget. Morse said his priorities are to restore money to programs for the mentally ill and developmentally disabled.
