Organizations mentioned/involved: New Hampshire Legal Assistance (NHLA)
[The proposed budget reductions] would cut aid to the poor that helps them deal with life’s crises and avoid homelessness. When asked to justify the cuts, the governor fell back on the time-worn bunk about needing to make tough choices. That’s absurd. The amount Legal Assistance would lose, $650,000, would cripple the organization, but the sum amounts to a rounding error in the $13 billion budget. Something else is at work.
