WHAT: Public hearing dates have been announced for the NH budget!
ACTION: This is, by far, our most important chance in a generation to reduce drug and alcohol problems in New Hampshire. Make this a priority. If we come together as people who care about drug and alcohol problems we can have a tremendous impact.
Please choose one of the hearings to attend, get a sticker to show your support, and SPEAK OUT. YOUR VOICE MATTERS! Testimony should be two minutes or less.
House Bills 1 and 2 are New Hampshire’s budget bills and establish spending for state fiscal years 2016 and 2017.
Prevention, treatment, and recovery need to remain a priority in the State Budget. The budget currently includes funding that:
• triples funding to the Governor’s Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse
• reauthorizes the NH Health Protection Program
• extends the substance abuse benefit to the existing Medicaid population
Let’s make sure the funding STAYS in the budget!
