ICYMI: Senator Hassan Visits The Karibbean in Lebanon
On Friday, Senator Hassan stopped by The Karibbean in Lebanon, where she chatted with owner Carline Roberge and purchased one of the many pieces of art that adorns the restaurant’s walls. Carline Roberge is one of the more than 140 small business leaders that have come out in support of Senator Hassan’s re-election campaign.
“The Karibbean is a vibrant restaurant and community meeting place that provides great food and art for the city of Lebanon,” said Senator Hassan. “It was a privilege to visit this local favorite.”
Senator Hassan is fighting to support small businesses in New Hampshire and across the country. In the last year, she has worked to pass legislation – that is now law – to provide small businesses with the resources that they need to succeed in the 21st century innovation economy, including:
The Inflation Reduction Act, which includes Senator Hassan’s bipartisan measure to double the federal research and development tax credit for small business and startups, building on her work as Governor to double New Hampshire’s research and development tax credit and extend it permanently.
The bipartisan innovation and competition bill, which will bring down costs, help the United States outcompete countries like China, invest in American research and manufacturing, and expand workforce development for technology and manufacturing fields. Senator Hassan joined a bipartisan group of colleagues to first introduce this critical legislation.
The bipartisan infrastructure law, which Senator Hassan helped negotiate, is helping New Hampshire businesses thrive by expanding high-speed internet to every community in the state and improving our roads, bridges, and ports so that businesses can move their goods more efficiently.
