Tanya Finishes, Inc. in Manchester and declared that the public hearing on the subject had commenced. She said that she and the members of the Council had received the written recommendation of the Authority and other documentation and information with respect to the project. The Governor said that the meeting would then hear anyone wishing to speak on the subject. Jack Donovan, Executive Director of the Authority, briefly explained the project, emphasized that the credit of the State was not involved and introduced Ray and Rojana LaPlume of the Borrower. The Governor then repeated that the proceedings were a public hearing and asked whether any other person wished to speak; there being none, Councilor Normand introduced a resolution entitled "A RESOLUTION UNDER RSA 162-I:9 WITH RESPECT TO THE FINANCING OF A INDUSTRIAL FACILITY BY THE BUSINESS FINANCE AUTHORITY FOR LAPLUME REALTY, LLC AND ITS AFFILIATE, N.E. TANYA FINISHES, INC. IN MANCHESTER, NEW HAMPSHIRE" and moved its adoption, which was seconded by Councilor Streeter. After discussion of the resolution, the Governor called for a vote on the motion. Those voting in favor were: the Governor and Councilors Burton, Spaulding, Griffin, Normand, and Streeter; those abstaining were Councilor(s): None; and those voting against were Councilor(s): None. The Governor declared that the resolution was passed.

WHEREAS, the Governor and Council have received from the Business Finance Authority of the State of New Hampshire (the "Authority") its written recommendation that the Governor and Council make certain findings and a determination pursuant to RSA 162-I:9 with respect to the financing of an industrial facility for LaPlume Realty, LLC (the "Borrower") and its affiliate, N.E.

WHEREAS, the Governor and Council have received all of the documentation and information with respect to the proposed transaction which they have requested; and

WHEREAS, further action by the Authority with respect to the proposed transaction is subject to, and cannot be taken until passage of, this Resolution;

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the foregoing, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED THAT:

Section 1. Findings. On the basis of the Authority's recommendation and the documentation and information received by the Governor and Council, and after a public hearing, the Governor and Council find:

(a) Special findings:

The Facility is within the definition of "Industrial Facility" in RSA 162-I (the "Act") and may be financed under the Act.

(2) The establishment and operation of the Facility will create and preserve employment opportunities directly or indirectly within the State of New Hampshire (the "State").

(3) The Mortgage, Security, Loan and Trust Agreement, The Bond Purchase and Guaranty Agreement and the other documents evidencing and securing the Bonds (the "Financing Documents") contain provisions so that under no circumstances will the Authority be obliged, directly or indirectly, to pay Project costs, debt service or expenses of operation, maintenance and upkeep of the Facility except from proceeds of the Bonds or from funds received under the Financing Documents, exclusive of funds received under the Financing Documents by the Authority for its own use.

(4) The Financing Documents do not purport to create any debt of the State with respect to the Facility, other than a special obligation of the Authority acting on behalf of the State under the Act.

(5) The proposed financing of the Project by the Authority and the proposed operation and use of the Facility will serve one or more needs and implement one or more purposes set forth in RSA 162-I, will preserve or increase the social or economic prosperity of the State and one or more of its political subdivisions, and will promote the general welfare of the State's citizens.

Section 2. Ultimate Finding and Determination. The Governor and Council find that the proposed financing, operation and use of the Facility will serve a public use and provide a public benefit and determine that the Authority's financing of the Project will be within the policy of, and the authority conferred by, the Act.

Section 3. Approval. The Governor and Council hereby approve the Authority's taking such further action under the Act with respect to the transaction involving the Facility, the Project and the Bonds as may be required.
