>> Welcome to New Hampshire Business. I’m Fred Kocher.

According to a related news article, the New Hampshire Office of Consumer Affairs said utility bills are likely to rise by 50%, according to the commission. Another is that the New Hampshire state government offered her $40 million in grants to the municipality, proposing his $100 million catch-up effort to build affordable housing.

We are experiencing high inflation and skyrocketing prices for everything from consumer goods to, as we know, our home markets. >> And these are pass-through fees. This is not a utility that makes extra money or big dough. This is an agreement that you have to pay for these pass-through fees and agree to a rate increase. >> The other squeeze is her 100 million housing from the governor of business and economic affairs. As you know, it’s a work in progress. A project of 74 affordable housing units has already been built there. do you know anyone else? >>I don’t know the others. I know this is causing political conflict between the governor and the man who opposes him, Senator Tom Sherman, who said this was his one-off Is called. This is his one-time deal, and he has a housing plan that he claims will be a long-term plan that people can rely on.

Eighty percent of the 119 businesses we list grew during the pandemic, generating $34 million in revenue and 26,000 jobs for him. That’s why family businesses are a truly integral part of our economy and we’re exploring it. >> We’re looking for it, MATTMENT NANCY, how about you? >> One of the big stories is what happens at GUNSTOCK. It was closed, it was closed temporarily, and everyone, from the governor to the people who live in the area and depend on the amount of money it generates, want it back online. I am thinking. >> Yeah, and you’re about to start a very interesting, affordable obituary, please explain. >> It was noted that many people do not publish obituaries in newspapers because of the expense.
