CONCORD — Attorney General Gordon MacDonald said he has joined with other attorneys general around the country to urge consumer reporting agencies Experian and TransUnion to halt charging fees to people who want to put credit freezes on their accounts in light of the massive data breach at the consumer reporting agency Equifax.
New Hampshire and 36 other states in a letter urged the major consumer reporting agencies to stop charging fees for credit freezes and fees to lift or temporarily lift credit freezes on consumers’ accounts.
The Equifax data breach reported last month has so far affected more than 145 million Americans, including about 635,000 New Hampshire residents.
GE completes engine test for Army
LYNN, Mass. — GE Aviation completed testing a T901-GE-900 turboshaft engine prototype in support of the U.S. Army’s Improved Turbine Engine Program, the company announced Tuesday. “As Apache and Black Hawk helicopters add capabilities and associated weight, they are also required to perform at higher and hotter conditions than they were designed for,” GE Aviation said on its website.
The GE-funded test engine exceeded performance requirements for the Army’s Improved Turbine Engine Program, GE Aviation said.
GE Aviation’s plant in Hooksett, where it employs 800 workers, was among more than a dozen company manufacturing locations that supported the turboshaft design, manufacturing, assembly and test of the project.
