MANCHESTER, NH - Today, Superior Court Judge David Anderson ruled for the state in Mary Jane Wallner et al. v Christopher Sununu.
Fiscal Committee Chair Mary Jane Wallner and Vice Chair Lou D’Allesandro released the following statement:
“We respectfully disagree with the Court's ruling. Today’s ruling is a blow to our Constitution’s promise of balanced government which guarantees that the Legislature, as the people’s representatives, transparently decides how taxpayer dollars are spent. It is unfortunate that Granite Staters will continue to have no voice or oversight over how state and federal coronavirus relief funds are allocated and spent.
New Hampshire is stronger when we all work together; that’s why it is disappointing that Governor Sununu continues to cut the Legislature out of New Hampshire’s recovery efforts. Regardless, as legislative leaders, we will continue to do all we can to ensure the remaining funds provide effective and efficient relief for Granite Staters.”
