What’s cooking at State Impact New Hampshire:
Amanda Loder has been touring the state gathering the stories about how Granite Staters are making it work in this economy. We’re calling the series “Getting By, Getting Ahead.” The first blog-post debuts this coming Monday.
Keep your eyes peeled for that, and Loder’s radio feature the following Tuesday. A different region will be spotlighted each week this summer, with an interactive web-gadget on the way, too.
Today I’m heading to Bedford to get to know what’s on the minds of women business-owners. It’s a one-day conference called Women Inspiring Women. If everything goes according to plan, you’ll be reading some of their stories right here.
And in the meantime, we’re also gearing up to dive deep with the amendment banning the personal income tax. Texas is the only state with such a constitutional amendment*, so we’ll be looking at exactly what went down in 1993, when that amendment became law.
*Correction: in researching we discovered that Nevada, also, has a state amendment prohibiting a personal income tax, and that Texas’ amendment isn’t technically a ban. More to come!
