Entries in NH LLC Tax (11)
CONCORD – House Speaker William O’Brien (R-Mont Vernon) and House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt (R-Salem) offered the following statements on the passage of Senate Bill 203, which revises and rewrite existing laws regarding limited liability companies (LLC) to making them more user-friendly.
House Speaker William O’Brien
“This is one more pro-business step we have taken to help the creation of good, new jobs here in New Hampshire. We need to get the Granite State back in the game of being competitive and helping our citizens.”
House Majority Leader D.J. Bettencourt
“These changes will make it easier for entrepreneurs to start small business and expand and hire employees. Our first goal was always to create jobs, and we have taken huge strides in that regard. The numbers bear this out, since the last Election Day, unemployment has dropped by one percent, and New Hampshire’s unemployment rate is among the lowest in the nation. This is a huge sea change from the past legislatures that passed many new regulations, increased state spending by a whopping 25%, and passed over 100 news taxes and fees. We have not lost focus on why we were sent here and will continue our efforts to create jobs, to bring fiscal responsibility to state government and to restore accountability.”
Manchester, NH - Today, potential gubernatorial candidate, Kevin Smith, released the following statement on the announcement by former State Senator, Maggie Hassan, that she intends to run for Governor:
"When it comes to talking about creating jobs and being a fiscal conservative, Maggie Hassan has about as much credibility as President Obama," said Smith. "The fact of the matter is that Maggie has an impeccable record in the State Senate of having raised a record amount of taxes and fees, including a job killing income tax on LLC's as well as her proposal for a government takeover of our State's healthcare system, dubbed 'Maggiecare.' Maggie also supported a state income tax while running as a candidate for state senate. Her record on raising taxes and spending is clear and it should scare the heck out of any current or future business owner in our great State."
Concord -Today, House Republicans held a press conference complaining about Democratic efforts to keep New Hampshire's budget in balance without offering any specific, substantive recommendations of their own.
New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Ray Buckley issued the following statement responding to the Republican press conference.
"I have two words for Minority Leader Sherm Packard and the House Republicans: grow up. Either come to the table and outline a specific plan for moving New Hampshire forward, or stop whining while Democrats keep New Hampshire one of the lowest taxed, lowest spending, best places to live in the country."
"The Governor, House, and Senate Democrats are engaged in a thoughtful debate - including specific policy proposals - on how to keep New Hampshire's budget in balance, while the Republican Party continues to act like spoiled children. "
"The New Hampshire Republican Party has become a caricature of itself. Like a child's doll that endlessly repeats the same phrase over and over again, Sherman Packard and House Republicans scream shrilly about cuts whenever Democrats try to have a meaningful discussion about the state's finances. The problem is that Republicans never suggest any specific sacrifices that they expect the people of New Hampshire to make."
