Good news for the New Hampshire budget.
Governor Maggie Hassan says the state has a $76 million budget surplus for this fiscal year, about $19 million more than they had anticipated.
The state is also running about $27 million ahead for the 2014 fiscal year.
She says, there are two reasons for the good fortune: Leaders have managed the money well -- and the economy is improving.
That money will go to refilling the state's rainy day fund and easing cuts to the Department of Health and Human Services.
