In a statement, Americans for Prosperity-New Hampshire said state revenues are $25 million short of targets for the past two months, and Gov. Hassan has instituted a travel ban and hiring freeze.
In a statement, Hassan’s office said Senate President Chuck Morse, a Republican, requested the project.
Democratic Executive Councilor Colin Van Ostern Tweeted Thursday that the room is often at capacity, and the issue is one of public safety.
