Morse, Forrester welcome Governor’s plan to restore nursing home funding in current budget

Forrester- PurpleConcord, NH – Today, Governor Maggie Hassan announced that she will restore funding to nursing homes in the State of New Hampshire.

“The Governor’s decision to restore cuts to the state’s nursing homes is welcome news,” said Senate President Chuck Morse (R-Salem).  “The Senate is working hard to not only make nursing home funding a priority in the budget we are currently building, but to also maintain a balanced budget that reflects the needs of our state as a whole.”

“I am encouraged to hear that the Governor has agreed to withdraw her proposal to reduce Nursing Home funding that the legislature passed in the current budget. Maintaining the funding appropriated to our state’s nursing homes in the current budget is not only the right thing to do but is dictated by law in the current budget,” said Senate Finance Chair Jeanie Forrester (R-Meredith).

“We continue to oppose the Governor’s proposal to reduce funding for home health care and the senate will work to make sure this funding is restored as we build the fiscal year 2016-17 budget,” added Forrester.
