- Odell: "...economic activity in the state is improving"

In his August 22, 2010 column on, New Hampshire Senator Odell writes,

"[The meals and rooms tax] has already produced more money than called for in the monthly revenue budget plan. With seven daily deposits to go, this suggests a turnaround in the state’s hospitality business, likely reflecting the tourism-friendly weather we have had this summer." 

"...when the real estate transfer tax, business profits and enterprise taxes, and interest and dividend taxes are all on track to exceed the predictions for the month, it suggests that economic activity in the state is improving."
