Maura Healey Tells Business Groups Massachusetts Will Be Business-Friendly

March 5, 2023

Massachusetts Governor Maura Healey spoke to business leaders this week and told them she wants to make the state more business-friendly.

Healey spoke at a Thursday morning Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce event. She told the business leaders at the event that she wants to help make the state a good place to do business.

“No one is going to compete harder as your governor than me,” Healey told the Chamber at the Westin Hotel in Boston, according to Commonwealth Magazine. “We’ve got to make sure we’re competitive with other states when it comes to attracting and retaining employers and businesses and keeping our residents here in the state.”

Healey this past week proposed tax cuts, including reducing the state’s short-term capital gains tax from 12 percent to 5 percent. She also wants to increase the state’s estate tax threshold from $1 million to $3 million.
