Budget Request Hearings Set This Week

With the clock ticking for building the budget for the next two fiscal years, hearings on budget requests began Monday morning at the Legislative Office Building in Concord. The hearings are an opportunity for state agency heads to tell lawmakers what they need to continue operating with the same level of services, but also to present their “wish list” for the upcoming fiscal years.

Hearings are set to take place all day Monday and Tuesday, ending with a morning session on Friday. The full schedule of hearings is posted below.
