CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Fulfilling a campaign promise, Gov. Maggie Hassan has created a special panel of experts to review and estimate the revenues New Hampshire uses in writing its budget.
Hassan issued an executive order Wednesday establishing the Consensus Revenue Estimating Panel to periodically develop and update estimates. The panel will advise Hassan during and after the budget process.
Hassan's budget director, Gerard Murphy, will chair the panel. Members are the commissioners of administrative services and revenue or their designees; attorney Richard Samuels, a director of the New Hampshire Business and Industry Association; Dennis Delay, an economist with the New Hampshire Center for Public Policy; Jeff McLynch of the New Hampshire Fiscal Policy Institute; and Ross Gittell, an economist and chancellor of the Community College System of New Hampshire.
