Our Position

 

New Hampshire's successful economic environment provides continued growth in employment opportunity, higher than average income, and a lower poverty rate than most states. New Hampshire's economy has good growth, low unemployment and one of the highest concentrations of high technology workers in the nation.

New Hampshire State Government has long reflected the views of its people who believe in fiscal responsibility, prudent government spending and a regulatory environment that fosters and supports economic growth. New Hampshire's unique approach to state government and financing has created a special advantage for the Granite State over all others. The absence of a broad-based income tax, capital gains tax and other taxes is a key element of this philosophy. It is "the New Hampshire Advantage" of fiscal restraint and prudence combined with a pro-growth economic environment that the New Hampshire Job Creation Alliance is committed to preserving and strengthening.

     

There will be several key Senate and House elections in November.

     
 
  • Participation in these campaigns can make a significant impact on the future direction of tax policy in New Hampshire.
 
 
  • The business community and workers have a responsibility to preserve New Hampshire's economic growth and capability to create jobs.
 
 
  • Any softening in the general economy will increase the pressure for new revenue sources; including broad-based taxes.
 
 
  • The Legislature must reflect the pro-job creation voice of New Hampshire business and the popular majority of our citizens.
