New Hampshire Small Business Alliance
We focus on the issues that matter most to our state's small
Making Health Care More Affordable -- The escalating
costs and complexities of health care are crippling small
businesses. We support fundamental reform to make quality
care more affordable for businesses and employees. We support
public-private partnerships that bring New Hampshire small
businesses together to purchase health insurance at the same
group rates offered to large corporations.
Reforming the BET -- The rising Business Enterprise
Tax (BET) hits small businesses the hardest. It makes it costlier
to hire more workers and make capital investments. The New
Hampshire Small Business Alliance is working to reform the
BET to help small businesses expand and compete.
Improving Education and Training -- A well-educated
workforce is essential to a strong economy. We need higher
standards and greater accountability from our public schools.
By expanding vocational training and keeping tuition affordable
at our state colleges, we can keep talented young people here
in New Hampshire.
Helping Small Businesses Grow -- We believe it's vital
the state work more closely with lenders to give small businesses
greater access to capital. We also support Enterprise Zones
that provide tax incentives for businesses to locate in communities
facing plant shutdowns and economic transition.
