GOP's Lamontagne lays out his six priorities for the state
HAMPTON — In front of a full house of Rotarians at the Old Salt Restaurant Tuesday, Republican Ovide Lamontagne laid out six priorities he will pursue if elected governor.
-- Creating a competitive and attractive environment for businesses to thrive and create and jobs by simplifying and reforming the state’s business tax code, including lowering the Business Profits Tax.
-- Keeping the size of government in check by enacting a balanced budget without raising taxes or fees.
-- Encouraging government to work as a partner and support system for the state’s businesses by putting in place a 90-day moratorium on any new rules and regulations and making sure any new rules are subjected to a rigorous economic impact analysis.
-- Improving the state’s health care delivery system to lower costs and increase access by encouraging competition in the market and working with the federal government to craft the Medicaid system that will work best for those most in need in the state.
-- Passing a constitutional amendment on education funding that will allow the state to allocate resources to the towns and school districts that need it most while fighting for more choice in education at the primary and secondary level.
-- Exploring all energy options, including nuclear and natural gas, and reviewing all existing state energy regulations for economic impact on businesses and consumers.
“By focusing on these priorities, we will encourage a pro-growth economic agenda that will stimulate job creation, and empower the innovative, hardworking people of New Hampshire to improve our state and make a difference for our families, businesses and future generations,” Lamontagne said.
