3-phase deregulation to help business
When I took office last year, we were one of the most over-regulated states in the Country. Therefore, I initiated a three phase approach to deregulation. Last summer, as part of phase one, we wiped over
1,600 regulations off the books by executive order. I then created a Regulatory Reform Steering Committee to review the State's current regulatory structure and propose reforms.
A few weeks ago, that Committee released a report on Phase 2 that proposed some of the most comprehensive regulatory reform efforts that this State has ever seen.
House Bill 1104, when it is complete and signed into law, will streamline permitting processes, modernize our corporate filing systems, reduce confusion and inconsistencies in local regulations.

Lower business tax to accompany no income or sales tax
There is a saying that those of us who are born in New Hampshire are lucky, and those of you who moved here are smart.
We have no income tax, we have no sales tax, and now, we have lower business taxes and fewer regulations. Let's keep it that way.

New department of Business and Economic Affairs
We all know that our economy is improving, but I think we can all agree that it could be doing better--and we must do more to boost the opportunities of our workforce. I've traveled the state; I've talked to business owners. It is an indisputable fact
that New Hampshire's workforce is a critical issue. With this in mind, I am moving our economic development division to a broader department--a new department of Business and Economic Affairs, where we can better coordinate
ALL of our business-centric agencies;
We need to unleash the potential of our economy to spur job growth and provide better opportunities for both businesses and workers throughout the state.
In addition, there will be a Small Business
Advocate as part of this department, whose emphasis will be to represent the interests of New Hampshire's small business owners before state agencies, ensuring the voice of New Hampshire's small business community is heard, loud and clear.
