NH Senate Ways and Means Committee supports NH small business growth, jobs 

Concord, NH – In a recent Senate Ways and Means Committee work session, Committee members reaffirmed the Senate’s support for HB 550 as amended by the Senate and passed last week.

“I am thankful for the Senate Ways and Means Committee’s support on this important legislation to reduce a restrictive tax on small businesses looking to grow and expand in the State of New Hampshire,” said Senate Ways and Means Chair David Boutin (R-Hooksett).

“Throughout multiple work sessions and conversations with key stakeholders, we were able to make improvements that will keep jobs in the state of New Hampshire, support new jobs, and welcome new businesses into the state. “

“I appreciate all of the hard work that went into this legislation on behalf of supporting good New Hampshire jobs and look forward to further discussion as the legislation moves forward in Committee of Conference,” added Boutin.


NH House Business Caucus and Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce Announce 4th Roundtable


CONCORD—The New Hampshire House Business Caucus, in partnership with the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce, will host its fourth in a series of  Business Roundtables with presidential candidates, on Monday, June 1, at 9 am at The Draft restaurant, 67 South Main Street, in Concord.  The featured speaker, and declared presidential candidate,  will be Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

“The momentum continues to build as we have more and more candidates take part in this series.  We have had a terrific response and level of interest from the business community, the candidates, and state elected officials,” said New Hampshire House Business Caucus founder and Chair, Rep. Laurie Sanborn (r-Bedford). 


“Chamber members have been fully engaged in the roundtable series to date and are looking forward to future events, such as this one with Senator Cruz. This is the best way for businesses to really get to know the candidates and understand their positions on key issues,” said Tim Sink, President of the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce. 


Ted Cruz has been a tireless fighter for liberty his entire life because his family knows what it is like to lose their freedom.  Cruz’s father fled to the United States to attend the University of Texas in 1957 after being tortured and imprisoned in Cuba.  In 2012, Cruz was elected as the first Hispanic or Cuban American to serve as a U.S. Senator from Texas.  Prior to this role, Cruz was Director of the Office of Policy Planning at the Federal Trade Commission and Solicitor General for the State of Texas. He was the first Republican candidate to announce his intention to run in the 2016 Presidential election.


The Business Roundtable is free, but space is limited, and RSVPs are required by May 26, 2015.
