Guy Montminy- Electronic Solutions VP, Finance, BAE Systems
Montminy outlines BAE Systems eight facilities in New Hampshire, employing over 4,600 people. He says the company contributes over $600 million a year to the New Hampshire economy.
Montminy says his company seeks location that offers high quality employees, quality of life, low taxes, and honest government.
He says the threat of eliminating the BET credit against the BPT would have been disasterous to his company and the state's economy. He says forcing businesses to pay both taxes would result in lost jobs and lost revenue. He asks for support in maintaining a competitive tax structure.
