Feb 14, 2023 by AFP

Manchester, New Hampshire—Today, Governor Sununu delivered his annual budget address to a joint convention of the New Hampshire state legislature.

In his address, the Governor outlined his plan to implement universal recognition of out-of-state occupational licenses, removing a significant hurdle to employment for thousands of workers in the Granite State.

The Governor also indicated support for eliminating the interest and dividends tax on New Hampshire Businesses.

New Hampshire State Deputy Director Ross Connolly gave the following statement of praise after the Governor gave his address:

“We applaud Governor Sununu for breaking barriers to employment in the Granite State.  Recognizing out-of-state occupational licenses will make New Hampshire a national leader in welcoming qualified workers. New Hampshire is suffering from a labor shortage and this policy is a common sense step to relieve that burden from employers and employees. We encourage the House and Senate to include this proposal in their budgets so that New Hampshire will be the best place in the nation to Live Free—and Work.”
