Maggie understands that we are in difficult economic times, and we need to help New Hampshire families and businesses by keeping taxes low. As such, she will continue to vote against an income or sales tax. When Massachusetts tried to force New Hampshire businesses to collect their sales tax, she sponsored a law to stop them. She likewise fought on behalf of New Hampshire businesses by helping to repeal the LLC tax and opposing new taxes on businesses. With Maggie's help, New Hampshire taxes are the second lowest in the nation.
Maggie also knows how important it is to simultaneously keep New Hampshire citizens working by saving and creating jobs, and we must prepare workers for a 21st century economy to preserve our state's quality of life. She worked with Gov. Lynch to pass NH Working, a three-part initiative that helps businesses keep workers on the job, gets unemployed workers back to work, and provides training to aid workers in finding new jobs. She also helped increase the minimum wage for the first time in ten years, worked to renovate the Seacoast School of Technology, established a job training fund, and passed a research and development tax credit to bring and keep new and good paying jobs to New Hampshire.
