STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Eleven

A RESOLUTION affirming revenue estimates for fiscal years 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Whereas, the House Ways and Means Committee has considered what the unrestricted revenue estimates should be for fiscal years 2011, 2012, 2013 and has presented those estimates to the House of Representatives; and

Whereas, the House Ways and Means Committee strongly supports the Liquor Commission’s capital budget request to renovate the Hooksett North and South stores which is estimated by the Commission to generate approximately $4,400,000 in additional revenue above the estimates affirmed below; and

Whereas, the House Ways and Means Committee strongly believes the repeal of the gambling winnings tax will have a significant positive impact on the revenue estimates affirmed below; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives:

I. That the House shall not adopt an operating budget for the state effective during the upcoming biennium that spends more than the total of these estimates, which total is $4,423,600,000.00, less the sum of $1,606,000.00 resulting from the estimated consequences of the reduction or elimination for the upcoming biennium of the taxes and fees listed below, for a total maximum state budget combined general fund and education trust fund spending of $4,421,994,000.00 in the upcoming biennium; and

That the following taxes and fees shall be reduced or eliminated, resulting in the estimated net reduction in the available state general fund and education trust fund revenues available during the upcoming biennium referenced above.

II. That the House wishes to go on record as affirming the following revenue estimates for fiscal years 2011, 2012, and 2013.

Committee estimates are based on current rates.
