NH Sen. Bradley Statement on House Passage of Senate Bill 41

The New Hampshire Senate

Republican Majority Office

Bipartisan, pro-business bill provides much needed update to New Hampshire's Business Corporation Act.

Concord, NH – Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, R-Wolfeboro, prime sponsor of Senate Bill 41 revising the Business Corporation Act, issued the following statement after the bill passed the House on a unanimous vote:

“This legislation is the result of the dedicated and diligent work of some of the best business minds in New Hampshire who have helped us to craft a uniquely New Hampshire bill that will update our corporate statutes and attract new businesses to the state.  I was proud to work with our state’s job creators and other interested parties as the sponsor of this key, bipartisan, pro-business bill, and thank all 336 members of the House – Democrats and Republicans alike – who stood with us today in passing this legislation.  Together, we look forward to Governor Hassan joining us and signing SB41 into law.”


HRA Comments on HB530, reducing business paperwork 

At a time when legislators should be focused on helping small
businesses, the Democratically controlled New Hampshire House killed HB 530-FN, which would have reduced the paperwork requirements of small businesses across the state.

"HB 530-FN would have reduced the frequency that corporations, LLCs,
and consumer co-ops must make a report,from annually to once every three years," stated Rep. Carol McGuire, HRA Co-chair. "The bill would have helped both our businesses and our state government reduce their paperwork load."
