NH Budget Vote Thursday

The NH House and Senate will vote on the state budget proposed by the committee of conference, tomorrow. The Senate is just about a sure thing and will easily pass along party lines, but the NH House is up in the air. If it does not pass, it's back to the committee of conference to tweak it further and give it another shot.
The budget at present calls for very large tax breaks to wealthy corporations, at a time when we have serious funding deficits for many critical needs.
Will the needs of NH prevail over the mindless " cut, cut, cut," mentality of the Freedom Caucus?
I'll get back to you tomorrow.
