That's the question Massachusetts leaders are asking after new Forbes report showing that Massachusetts is on the top ten list of where out of your State's 56% more people moved out of the bay state and moved the question is why. What you think and look got to know Graham it's freaking freezing and you're right. But it's also freezing in New Hampshire Minnesota North Dakota those states are on the top and who's -- list in fact north -- having a population boom. Is -- crazy liberal policies like high taxes. Yes New York Connecticut and Illinois the Massachusetts of the midwest girl on the list but the West Coast as high taxes they're not.

We're always hold on your checkbooks and did your portfolio break. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Morning's New England -- Any team buried in him. Terry can dot com and -- I was doing great until about five minutes ago. What's going now scheduled to report came like it plus it was a revision right -- really like it. It is easy it's it's one of those economies where you take three steps forward and then for back to forward one is just see. I feel like we're stuck in mud. They can it's like yours your hero they're walking through the snow drifts right and use EE sink a little bit deeper every time you're trying to get home. I understand Anderson exasperation I think there's a lot of people. Our households author -- same way where they just feel like take one step forward two steps back in and I had reason for up to let let's share. Our reasons for optimism. Until that -- report came out it at 10 AM. -- the this report came out. -- -- strong job market expected for Boston Cambridge Quincy mass New Hampshire right yes I read that and I say. You know from April to June 22% of the companies interviewed plan to hire more employees while 3% expect to reduce staff. Another 71%. Expect to maintain their current employee. Workforce levels and 4% are not certain of their hiring plans this year with the net employment outlook of 19% of you say to yourself can bet that's pretty good announced. But the problem is it's a sentiment number. Right it's an emotional it's kind of like. Consumer sentiment right right how do you feel about the economy not hard data. It's just lately wouldn't -- you were impression of what might be going on the economy additional data that we received. This came out a Gallup pretty gambling source. A few years ago only 8% of Americans surveyed said it looked like a good time to find a quality job. The 27%. Saying so in the latest survey looks like raging optimism -- three years ago is 8%. Thought it was a guitar right forgot today's 27%. -- with that number was back in 2007. 40%. So that's -- like it's it's all relative. It is already -- but those again you know whether it's a good time to look for job are you feeling about it what are employers viewing. The fact of the matters here are the jobs numbers this is how many jobs are open right now the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Does a study every month and they issued this report it's called the -- jolts report which really is job -- -- this is how many jobs are available. Last month. May revive if they told us that there were three. 1974000. Jobs -- in the last month in fact it reduced that down to 3990000. Chips. We expected. Four million jobs over four million jobs to be listed for this month. In fact we missed rightly coming in -- and -- only like 39 so. The you you again ate it reaffirms this whole quicksand economy yes -- say to get ahead maybe not. -- -- Well I mean I don't think anybody thought this was going to be quick right and we all knew and we knew. When you compare I mean for example. You know the numbers you were just talking with me and powerless to look back -- those were predictions for the second quarter first quarter. Increase in staff levels only 16% -- where it wears -- 22 so that that's something positive. How many unit decreased while backing Q1 place at 6% said they were gonna decrease where -- three. -- get you know these these are somewhat positive. We have to just look for the positives but I know exactly what you're saying it's not it's not quick. Lot of people -- think this is gonna happen you know overnight you wanna get those jolt -- report it to four you know four point five million. I'm a pretty patient -- to -- -- -- has been it has been thinking about how Danica. He did get bad they kept that. Do you see evidence that the job market is improving 6680. Is our text number we'd love to hear from you on that very topic do you see any. It's that the job market is improving in the job market is improving pair it W I think I think I hope everybody says yes they do see -- it's improving. It just is an improving at the pace that I hoped. Fast and right in and here's what it boils down to lows well if you are among those who are looking for job if you're unemployed and yes right well in that markets not improve. Right -- the economies like if if your among those looking for work or if you're grossly underplayed which -- -- a lot of a lot of folks right. Lot of guys or make it -- -- grand a year are now working part time at home people got in and that's that's that's what's happened. 22 part a big segments of our economy. The big question is you know is will it get better and win you know a -- test. And -- billion frustrated well I think a lot of people are getting frustrated I understand exit which sank a lot of people feel that same frustration. I don't know -- let's keep ticket at least that one step forward to write to us -- Canada showed we have for but he did a lot of good stuff that you finish a story on Muni bonds I don't know if you own any Muni bonds out there -- -- Muni bonds. The years this is the gist of the story the Wall Street Journal revealed. The mark up for the spread of the commission would you call right. The charges on Muni bonds. -- double two times the amount that the charges are on corporate pilots. And so if you're an investor. EC your your retirees sixty years old he's one -- safe and keep it simple you don't pay a lot of tax so -- do. You call your broker you go to E*Trade and you say. I want to buy Muni bonds while you're paying twice the commission twice the spread on the -- If you Laura corporate we're going to be joined by Anthony Valeri he's an investment strategist at LP LD's and tell us why. It's. Absolutely it sounds like rip off not to mention the fact that the state each -- Muni bonds Sosa. And so say -- work she's right we keep hearing. And you say Detroit. Yeah I mean we just keep here about the value of these bonds going down and down and you wonder if you're sixty years old that's -- experts that's right right so the last hour. We'll talk to you about that and we'll we'll get some streets scoop on that topic. I did have a an announcement for those of you like safe investments inherited this from leader banker friends leader bank. Are offering you. And hiring a CD this is for new customers to leader bank. If you are look if you CD maturing hears and what you do is take a listen to this tree because it's a two year CD here 24 months CD. At a rate in EPY. Of one point 4%. Now that to me sounds like a pretty good rate I checked it on Bankrate dot com I did not find any bank with a higher. Yield on the CD then one point 4% check yourself call your own bank call your credit union's CP can get a better deal. I don't think you will it's a one. Point 4% EPY. On May 24 month CD available exclusively from leader bank they have offices and branches in East Arlington Arlington center. Arlington Heights. Belmont Burlington in Central Square if you just wanna call perhaps you can do this over the phone you don't wanna travel down to leader bank. -- called their phone number is 781. 646. 3900 -- 7816463900. Tell them you want information about the 24 month. Fiery CD with an eight PY of one point 4%. Available exclusively. -- leader bank to the best of my knowledge it is the highest EP wide you're gonna find. Not only in the state of Massachusetts but anyway I looked on Bankrate dot com if you know something better -- -- -- 68680. The phone number again for leader -- 781646. 39716463900. That's the along on the short terrific. What day why are casino workers so opposed to obamacare have you been following this story I haven't but I it occurs to me these are all union guys yes that's right -- of the guys that put our president in office. Yes they did both times as they did with with the promise that if Obama care went through. They would be enjoys the benefits of the plan right they would be getting some of the tax cuts and take EUE get into office guys and I'll take care. Absolutely well as it turns out that's not the case at all. That -- -- unions are treated like. Employers not as individuals. There. Was well. A deal to qualify for subsidies that obamacare. So in fact there. Here -- health care is increasing in pretty quickly. And so they can pick it Washington -- slows their picketing outside -- hotels. In Vegas. What occur to me in this story -- that. These workers service. Industries. These union workers they may be the first be picketing in the first of the realizing that. Unions across this country they're gonna start real thing. That they don't qualify it was -- these -- yet. They put this guy in office you look at the percentage of union members voted -- just like -- And he exploded -- the equipment. I don't think about it for a moment and I understand what they don't qualify I mean what what would make the difference there you'd be any different than you. And your employees right I mean you're providing group. And the union is as well so what what makes them any different. It doesn't. The differences that they put an office and they -- there was going to be a little something extra -- notes that the unions are getting so I would say this is the first of many -- to be -- streets. Well they let. You report itself what they say. Said anyway. I heard talk about Muni bonds -- guest is Anthony Valeri he's an investment strategist for LPL financial. Anthony good morning welcome to the program. Who appreciate time now I written article today's Wall Street Journal about Muni bond investors. Paying twice in trading commissions for Muni bonds when they're compared to corporate boards while a deputy. But and I don't know that. I thought that report I don't know why is the right number but in general. -- that a little more expensive to -- packed and you know spoke on vs corporate bonds and that. -- epic reflection that. Municipal bonds are a little harder to trade. Think corporate bonds and outlook -- corporate bond market has taken has made more strides to make that an investor friendly market with. More -- issues that trade with an error transaction costs in the Muni market unfortunately. It's just so regional so it's so local. That you don't get debate on the issues that tree frequently enough to have. Narrower bid ask -- that would be the lower transaction costs. Can you explain that whole concept of spreads because a guy who's bought a CD your bought a stock before. May not understand how -- spread works when it comes to the acquisition of corporate bond or Muni -- Shares so a municipal bond government -- municipalities they have on that. Trade very much. And might have. They have self pride that is that for -- 99. And offers I don't 993 quarters that might. That could be -- that which is fairly wide in India corporate bond market that disparity. On on actively traded issue could be a point 125 or even just a quarter so there there could be a big difference. The other factor that comes into play is the the dollar amount to degrade the dollar but you have to invest the greater the block size the more that more bargaining parity capital. More that back to come down. But the other factors at play at that that's going to be -- of that that spread as we call it that transaction costs that come by. If you need it appears he again based on the Wall Street Journal article that there is less regulation. Over spreads on Muni bonds than there are on corporate bonds is that is that consistent with your finding. There's. There's no evidence regulation on both quite frankly I expect that in the union marketed only be. Worked a little bit more but. I would -- that we've come a long way in the media market to to improve transparency to improve the ordering -- municipal securities rule making for the MSRB. As a web site out there where individual investors can go and check pricing on individual securities so that they know the price they receive or being offered. Whether it's a good one or not unfortunately but it to market -- got to be careful you know there are on -- out there looking to to boost their bottom line. And you'd do just that that do your homework and unfortunately any market forces you a little harder to do. To watch yourself on on the -- Do you think he does it have anything to do with the fact that -- most corporate bond purchasers. Our big institutions in mutual funds were as Muni bonds are being pot purchased by. You know my mom and dad and individuals and 45% Kim a Muni bond purchases are by individuals. As opposed to corporates which is much higher with what does that weigh into this at all the ID taken advantage of the individual investor -- Anthony who. And I and you know right I don't -- speaking Spanish percent but I I agree I agree with that I I think that there's a component that. Yes the institutional investors much more active in the corporate market. And for that reason I think that -- that's part of the other part I think is that the corporate market -- a better job of going to electronic exchanges to issuing debt that is more. More likely to be treated with a lower transaction costs focusing on March liquidity issues whereas in the media market we haven't quite come as far may. That's but just not quite the there's there's that aspect to it as well this idiot -- -- -- Bryant -- thanks very much for your time we appreciate it. Anthony Valeri investment strategist for LPL financial. Hey you know I just can cut to the chase here -- I think what happens on Muni bonds is these makers and it did not regulated the same way as a corporate right which is. -- -- silly when he does the anything about a logically right wouldn't you want a higher degree of regulation on a government issued ball absolutely as opposed to corporate but they're not. And so it's it's buyer beware in that kind of the situation. And unless EEE in less urine fall if if you're advisor is a fiduciary right. So that means he's strictly working on feet and he's required by law -- -- -- get the dead best -- and desperate on that bull shark. If -- deal with a guy that's working on a commission you need to really be EU what would -- that he was telling was that. You know buyer beware right right right right may be more about who you're dealing with than this. The -- itself -- Double as the spread it and double on up on a fixed income security I thought it just it means we used to what I'm try to tell -- is that. If you're buying an individual Munis. Ended your buying them from a commission based broker. You'd you'd be I wanna rethink that whole process is just some advice from local there. Thanks a little bit are you feeling better today. -- -- uncle Barry and answer -- Attorney general. Golan after he -- wins so it's that's over with and this stinks you know. At least dental providers -- go into nursing homes. To countless places where people need dental -- can't come to them. Well they call those in house calls essentially what they're doing -- they were. -- -- Billing Medicaid for. An additional charge. Which. Which they called house call eight and also charged for the appointment. So what they're doing it just so everybody's clear this -- You'll get the name of the now that. Dental company would go to nursing home they -- ten patients right in the build them for ten travel right. Right -- and in each and each visit was a house call. We evacuated read it for someone that it's a lot of gas incident so it's called. Health drive corporation. And they've gone after them they -- dollars to the system. That can answer any jail time or anything like that practice is gonna have to pay it back and obviously there be reined in what they've reached a settlement with the doctors there this is in the first needed. Now we have -- when -- east and lastly -- -- weeks ago weeks ago that it essentially saying that. And it's having just gone through. You know my own personal issues with an elderly grandparent and although we went through. You aegis -- sell many companies. To the dentist's office who are out their scheme and system comes to the you know -- -- of these cases it's like it's elderly person can stand up for the set themselves. Unfortunate that may be some of these. Nursing homes and homes that sells for recognizing was. Out. Anyway they're constantly being scammed this an example where the AG after is -- ever. Well yesterday we're highly critical of the attorney general's office from your increased from -- today. Is she she would appreciate you went from a go to a nearly 24 hours. -- -- Martha well listen there's a lot of times I personally think which goes after these individuals like this mean girl office they're doing with date with the to do. Their job that is there to like something about the banking -- you -- you don't like it which regulates you don't mind which goes after the bad diesel regulations coming off. She was over regulating the banks and would I EC. I have to speak on behalf of the banks in the mass bankers association because they're -- -- Atlanta -- and and there's there's truth in that there's a lot associations are for their sorry bankers in this state because we're so Democrat talking about Massachusetts here right Hampshire. The the the financial institutions are few are fearful. That retribution look and feel the need to be spank that I didn't say -- -- it again uncle Barry coming through. That might give a trivia question for. Cash but so many pitches and that's -- -- questions. This -- questions because he rules. That's something we talked about yesterday. So yesterday we asked was the first billionaire country via -- and it was sent -- report. A lot of a lot of people. Texting. And text and said that was wrong but I would pack and it will -- -- that -- workers I'd probably. Say drop your new monster and that's the truth be known. He was the first.

The -- mark something for -- and I'll give you hit do you remember the word explorer controversy and a problem yes and it was related news in this is. The words used to range marriages. While they were debutantes and they only fair to throw the -- Mary EP Mary from the very select -- and it was an arranged this marriage was an arranged marriage well lately actually pretty good for him use it -- but I'm sure it because. Quite frankly it was all in the business. If you look at all. 68680 is. Boldness line text number if you take a shot at that. But let's talk about dress codes. The this this came up and -- Knee it's a story about ports the city street and they have. Invoked he dress code and I've always worked in an environment that had to dress code I think you know you have -- the very thing we do on TV do they pay for your -- separate portion yes party -- an -- you get it close to sift tax and that yes. Parties. But. Rivera the new mayor there he we don't. As history. Point four ended and even if it was TV. I know date with David have to change is a tyrant Friday's I'd have to look better in the narrative on Fridays -- line Eugene every Friday. I wake up kind of -- has -- network -- well. Let's play hockey players. Let's just I thought down the nitty gritty -- at this pitches and got market and at 2 AM company here -- are baggy jeans to cover that I. -- But it armed repair -- they're in Lawrence this test swimming upstream. You know he's really work are you and he wants to change the image of Lawrence and where it has to start is at City Hall. So what he's decided is that you know people only to look professional and we're gonna pose as a professional city and by -- the people here have to look that way. No jeans no sweats no -- or morals no Bermuda shorts no spandex. And pajamas and he had that he actually had to say. Gotta love Lawrence. He says that men need help on -- if you work in that building you have on. -- -- I -- more power to India I I due to his instinct part though he's got help these people because I've you know on. -- port city employees have had a bit of you haven't paid -- had been paid all that well so taxpayers pay 45000. Dollars a year to better. The way the employees now this I feel about that. I disagree with that like making go to Salvation Army I -- -- all my old suits isn't -- do that with his old so I do with it right you just taken me throw in the subway they know get stuff for not -- And still -- Right you you can go -- national enough some products Todd plays the shirt dress shirts everything you know for free so. I do not think I I applaud. The with the mayor's doing right I think it says the right thing to do I think he did they dress code in workforce is if your dressing. In a more formal fashion hopefully you'll treat the city customers and of course days. Enable -- by the way right so you know. Right and I'm good with that -- and not think we should be painful I agree. I you know I worked in a strange world where they paid. Well but ultimately our work -- idle mind not like not segment producers absolutely not only people who appeared on television and not everyone who appear on television. Was granted. And that kind of thing either by I don't think that the taxpayers should be. Doing when you do that. Judy CA DU easy to sponsored deal like -- see it -- associations he sees answered -- -- treated with commercials and other times. They just part salary it was X amount. And idealism and a receipt Eastman and close. On your cries a lot. To tell. You know I really can't that is true because -- gas I don't know buried in mutual every woman who works until you mean and it is a lot as well. But you know I don't know I would say. I don't I know what the station provided me and I probably double. So I don't know I was somewhere around 20000 a year year. Do you have a separate wing of your house closers there's.

Why do you why why do you like the stock it's a 32 dollar stock it looks expensive on the surface. From a price earnings ratio standpoint. So. What you really need to look at here in the business is are in particular because of the spin off is the pretax. -- and that tells the story of how much how much cash the companies really generate. It's of very attractive business even those. That -- -- -- growing very -- it gotten very high return on capital they don't need to invest in inventory and like that rivals like 1800 flowers. These guys basically carried no end it. It's just the connection. That they make among the among among the floor that requires low capital investment to keep it business running.

They want those judge's ruling -- out there because those judges heard some. Of these to -- While I am scared right. But. It is on his mayoral what's is that it's an industry keeps that area of the country -- -- what did. But I'll anyways so its its interest its policy. Also saw a story in the New York Times. About. This experiment that was done as a relates to hiring practices. And the experiment. Had to do with be the acting was Fordham University did face of -- Columbia they did a -- A study about hiring practices. And it found. That. Women were discriminating against other women. In hiring -- and and women were being discriminated against in hiring both by man and what it is just a. Well but -- specific fields and she's so this direct Columbia business school -- that does expire. At. It's really accurately about status. But there's a portion of what Larry Summers said a few years ago about women in the sciences and mathematics field. It's true he said that. Not a lot of women are hired the worlds of science and engineering because of age discrimination. Because of preference tan and a difference in their appeal from that's the party disagree. Ability right so. This group at Columbia Business School decided that they would put to test at least the discrimination portion so they put together. What was falls hiring. Atmosphere. OK and no one involved in this test actually knew that it was for jobs related to engineering and science. And the hiring. Individuals only saw a picture. Of the applicant. And your applications. And yours there. Their criteria all of their character is everything about it was say except their pictures. And time and timing. Men and women who were hiring hired the -- for the position twice as often. Places that they had that they had the same and he attributed to. -- because I think that. Men are more associated with the jobs engineering and science I think I think Larry Summers is right I think theories this false idea that they're more capable. Debt debt that they interestingly enough they took it from there finance OK so now these were eager situations. And the situation. And let's see if it changes. The way the hiring board feels so they brought he's been in the game. They had centers -- questions asked them the same thing -- asked them to talk about their ability in the job and what they would do what they've accomplished what they'd be better candidate. And they said time and time again in the post it away it was actually more so -- what they would be able to deliver. And the women underplayed themselves. And did not talk about their capability and did not talk about what they would be so women need to learn how to -- better so that is that. I think I'm like well this sounds like me women need more confidence when it comes to science and engineering. So I mean time and time again the high errors discriminated -- the women and women eat the potential. Candidates. So -- -- themselves and -- So you can understand why somebody hiring would choose the man over the. Aren't something new it is New York Times -- did how so how many birds are in that house. Eighty -- one who knew. If you do we have a winner there -- -- -- -- aggregate I think we do it just gave you ask Kerry to bring us a winner AD one.

They have some cash flow and liquidity is is better at this point and it JC Penney is projecting. That they will have two billion dollars in the bank by the end of 2005. Top fourteen now well. I tell you what I'm skeptical about JC Penney. But I respect the stock market in the stock market is telling me they JC Penney survives. Today. JC Penney shares or 79 cents at nine dollars and 21 cents to your point -- They are almost 10% just today in market hasn't been opened yet for two hours is that something -- and the stock is up almost 10%.

Share was speaking of New Hampshire I was shocked when I saw this story there is a bill in the state of New Hampshire to senate bill. Bill 367. Kim and it's sponsored by a state senator Jim Ralph. And it is to freeze the gasoline tax by four point two cents. New Hampshire in New Hampshire. I think I what's -- gasoline tax to eighteen and it's been it's it's lower. So one of the benefit would people would do frequently is they drive up to the Rockingham mall. And the -- and antitank aghast when they go up they shop in the Rockingham mall spent a thousand bucks and not pay sixty dollars in sales tax. Then they would buy gasoline. Gasoline was generally -- not my experience gasoline unit -- ten cents per gallon. Cheaper than it is in Massachusetts. And they are now considering. A very significant. Increase in their gasoline tax member. New Hampshire has no sales tax right and no earned income tax -- the dividend and capital gains tax. But this I'd be curious three guys up in here after 68680. Is our Texan first of all were you aware right I I found this in the New Hampshire business review. And two do you think it's gonna pass this New Hampshire. Even though there's a lot of mass holes up in New Hampshire. They have they they've held out maybe they -- been very resistant likely to run for governor. In New Hampshire used to take the no income tax play it sure I mean he really. Speed despite the the the proliferation. Of liberals moving up to New Hampshire from Massachusetts. They have. Held the line on taxes. But what's interesting is that the that person writing this article you from Manchester Michael. Michael is writing this with the idea that. This is not a lot of money for it did you know your bank for about. He is saying that the roads and bridges in the state of like a lot of vets stadium and it -- comparative. That they pass this so that they can keep him -- and keep and I will -- at one point they have -- their roads for a state that gets. As much weather as they get the roads are always fantastic. Jimmy you know you don't better than -- it's like you're the structure so much that. You drive needs to think about you -- to New Hampshire new goal 128. Injury to go to route three. You -- -- 93 legal although it 95. And as soon as you get over that border the road to. A question about it and they wanna raise the taxes that's a tough sell. I think I I think they're gonna have a tough -- and New Hampshire. Just see it they just. The the hand held the line on a lot of these -- it's amazing you know you look. At the state of New Hampshire they -- islands in the sixty New England region where you've got the it's the only hold -- Means that terrible state for taxes Vermont it's like it's like socialist republic in Carolina. It is nothing else OC that's the problem there's an industry -- -- just tax. Unity disease. That you got Vermont which is terrible right. Massachusetts. We eat if in Vermont does is socialist what do we were were -- Rhode Island. Rhode Island eat just it's like the state that these -- taken Apatow. And then you've got Connecticut Connecticut. It is just as bad yes she sits and how spec gasoline in Connecticut. Is ten cents per gallon more right than it is in Massachusetts Massachusetts Connecticut really -- states I think that are sort of similar in those -- you know they really really are they tax everything every I think the sales tax in -- it. Is 7%. It's it's absurd. Yeah it's tough to live in Connecticut that's attesting to -- But New Hampshire's not that's for sure that where I'll be anxious to see if they pass this and how they -- if they can sell it to the -- that people who live up there. -- now we we're getting some of the folks at Chiming in from New Hampshire.

Don't get depressed if you haven't won our trivia contest yet every day we have I don't know three or. For questions that we throw out there this is the last trivia question for today's program Kim would be -- force. I'm glad to. Hear what are 617. Listeners on all want a bummer I didn't win today I keep listening for the trip it up up. Hang in -- my friend that you can -- this. You know. We've been talking so much about the situation Colorado and down recreational marijuana being sold there of course -- at the minute he. So January was their first full months to get a sense of how much tax revenues they will generate. So what we wanna know is if you can come up with a number not just recreational marijuana sales there but. Also medicinal sales when you combine the two what was the tax revenue generated for the state of Colorado okay. You know here in this state we will only when it happens will only have medicinal new attacks -- point and will be taxing it. I and I can break it down for you when you which she gave me the answer we'll break it down and tell you how the two. You know what it was for recreational but it was from that is open right now we're looking for the single number three just for January just Virginia total taxes total Colorado. 68680s. Or text that's correct. Let's go to Steve sire. Speaking of taxes he wrote an article about tax breaks that are given to corporations Steve -- good morning. That I -- this 2.3 million dollars by the way. Good yes. Yeah not right I might return -- the heart. I wanted to ask you because I read your article and you know you read about companies like. Liberty Mutual Vertex Pharmaceuticals. State Street day everybody. Is getting a tax break and -- the globe and tax breaks but at least not recently that. It seems like every big employer -- is is getting a lot of tax breaks from the the state. Absolutely yes lots of them. So what does the state do they give Liberty Mutual usually there's a deal right they'll say okay we'll give you a ten million dollar tax break what you have to do acts. Does the state in fact audit any of these tax breaks that are extended the large corporations. Well most of those tax breaks -- on the state level. Supposedly are kept track of by the department of revenue view war. Oh how. Go to a better job they do and how -- it is. A process that they tracked these things and in that eight making sure. The people. Claiming the credit are eligible in the first place in the -- if there's they have to do something to. Satisfied that that break that it takes. Place where explains. In an upscale in a manner that is supposed to happen it is I think. A very open question and these are these are typically. Are -- talking about breaks the chill out on your. State business income taxes but the the example that you mentioned earlier Liberty Mutual protects those were typically things that were awarded on a local level that work. Based on in that -- as incentives to build built somewhere in the liberty. Mutual building. Next to -- down by Berkley street but it giant -- protect headquarters down in the mission district but these are things that war. Basically things that you deduct on your taxes or credit that you get your business -- -- -- So disease of the deal are is responsible for auditing what about the state auditor can Suzanne Bump walked in there and say. A Raytheon we want to take a look at your books because you took fifty million dollars with the deductions. No no absolutely not and this is something in a way. That the orders him up the street -- right now with someone escalation as she's pushing this as she makes points thanks I'm not -- order order -- you know ever ordered any other company bit of -- of the order is to. -- places like deal or to figure out what their systems are like how are they keeping track this correctly that he -- have the people on the systems to do with the first. Will weather states do and what it would -- is New Hampshire new Yorker Nevada -- that kind of either state and. Now if you ask me about it individuals stated be hard pressed to answer. The order you're claimed that in 36 day. The the person at the function of the water has powers like that that you know there or their party and fifty states that have state income tax -- so it's 36 out of 41 of the edit a huge majority now people -- cursor pushing back against that question. But that's that's what the order with what the number. This is in -- she fell out of favor with the governor after she did her audit of the department of transitional assistance right what is she finally cheated that. That's right you know there was. Big a public controversy about the the ability of that agency didn't. To essentially distribute. Assistance whether that was is. Welfare payments -- food stamps and things like this on a lot of abuse she did she found billions of dollars of suspect claims and created a report about that and -- you know governor kind of to receive -- and but you know the order is an independent -- she's not -- number of the governor's cabinet and that's what he's supposed to be doing independent. Is she yeah she is her term up is she running for re election this November. No I got to be honest I'm not sure of what she's done. I think he ran last time nation is she gets a four year term yes yes you know. So when he takes the -- what comes -- this. Well you know she has. She has. Position that it is offered some legislation that would -- at this hour. The business lobbies in the state at all that it typically they can't agree on anything but they agree on this we all need it. And whether the chamber of congress and Boston the associated industries -- message is all these groups at it jointly have. Had tried to to kill this thing and in fact you know I am far from legislative expect an expert that you sort of get away from the things that I know. What happens to -- that's a it could move forward -- could just die a quiet -- I don't know but it certainly issues that were parked about one that lives in the status right now. I intellect EE you look at what happened with -- issues on the she found food stamps that again a lot of it if and that that's maddening depicts the now they've people got to appeal. Back to take a look. Yeah if you don't want picnic there. Drives business people crazy about this is -- her point of view is whether it's giving people tax breaks on taxes they otherwise would have paid work. Giving payments to people to help them that we would not otherwise do that one way or another these are policy decisions that affect. State finances. Money not coming -- -- extra money going out and that you know looking at these tax breaks from that policy point of view is just as important. It is looking at policies that that. Send money to people who need it whether we're doing a good job. Don't have a social program unless she can afford to ought to -- a position it'll be taken advantage is to -- -- well. Steve great article thanks for joining us should be at Steve sire from the Boston Globe chime in in great minutes it is it's really good. I think they'll have a hard time getting it through but I I would watch it NC you know I think I think the governor -- liked this idea and it is like Suzanne. So he's kind of he's gonna push back up there Beacon Hill. Foreclosure picture in New Hampshire is brightening in. Which is great and it didn't matter everywhere but New Hampshire seems to be doing that -- In 2000. 2700. In two foreclosures in New Hampshire last year amounted to the smallest number of filings. Of such deeds since 2007. In 2010. More than 800 foreclosure notices were going out. A month. The average in 2013. Was a little more than half of that so in that story in three years like it dropped by 50% right in -- that's just the the -- New Hampshire.
