CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Republican Gov. Chris Sununu has delivered his third biennial budget address, emphasizing tax cuts and combining higher education systems.

Sununu vetoed the last state budget in 2019, but Republicans have since regained control of both the House and Senate. The plan he outlined Thursday increases general fund spending by 7% without increasing or adding taxes or fees. Instead, he proposed lowering the business enterprise tax and raising the threshold for filing it, reducing the rooms and meals tax and phasing out the interest and dividends tax.

He also wants to combine community colleges and four-year colleges and universities into one system.
