CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire state agencies will explore creating a new program to ease regulatory hurdles for business.
Gov. Maggie Hassan said in her State of the State address Thursday that the program would build on existing efforts like the Innovation, Efficiency and Transparency Commission and the Business One Stop.
Hassan says she will issue an executive order directing state agencies to move all possible business-related forms online by the end of the year.
Besides easing hurdles, the Gold Standard program would highlight businesses with exemplary track records, allowing them to focus on growth and job creation.
