Maggie knows that smart, effective, fiscally disciplined government is essential to our state's economy, and she was instrumental in balancing the state budget by cutting state spending and making government more efficient. Maggie understands that is essential for New Hampshire's leaders to establish inventive policies that keep our spending low while continuing to deliver better value to our citizens. Thus, while Maggie cut overall spending, she made sure to protect aid to local communities to help avert property tax increases and maintain important services for our families. Also, after hearing that the Department of Corrections was requesting 30 million dollars for new prison space, Maggie established a commission to determine how best to manage and monitor nonviolent offenders and how best to provide treatment to those with substance abuse or mental illness, so that expensive and unnecessary incarceration can be avoided.
