New House Speaker Steve Shurtleff, D-Concord, is already walking back comments he made about two state business taxes that are scheduled to decrease in 2020 and 2022.
Shurtleff was asked if he supported keeping those changes in place.
“We’ve got a good robust economy in New Hampshire. We don’t want to do anything to jeopardize that. I don’t see why we wouldn’t maintain the status quo, but I would want to talk to both Democrats and Republicans on key committees to see what they recommend,” Shurtleff told the New Hampshire Business Review during an interview posted online last week.
