NH Senate President Statement on State Employment Numbers

New Hampshire Senate

News Release

Concord, NH – Senate President Chuck Morse, R-Salem, today issued the following statement on the state’s improving employment picture:

“Over the last year more than 8,600 of our residents have found work here in New Hampshire.  This is welcome news not only for our economy but more importantly for the hardworking men and women of this state who are now able to better provide for themselves and their families.

“Yet while our state’s economic indicators remain stronger than national averages, there is still more to be done to encourage economic growth, job creation, and a welcoming business climate.  In order to regain our standing as the strongest economy in the Northeast, and put even more of our friends and neighbors back to work, the Senate remains committed to controlling state spending and returning to the sound fiscal policies that made New Hampshire the best state in the region to start, relocate, or grow a successful business.”
