EXTRACT FROM THE MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF THE GOVERNOR AND COUNCIL HELD SEPTEMBER 4, 1997 IN THE COUNCIL CHAMBER, STATE HOUSE, CONCORD

At 10:50 a.m. the Governor announced that the next matter to be considered would be the financing of an industrial facility project by the Business Finance Authority for Felton Brush Inc. in Londonderry 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 Darrell Johnson and Al Jenkins of Felton Brush Inc. The Governor then repeated that the proceedings were a public hearing and asked whether any other person wished to speak. Mr. Joseph Haas questioned whether the State was in compliance with all Federal status and wondered if this would impact the tax exemption for the bond. Councilor Normand introduced a resolution entitled "A RESOLUTION UNDER RSA 162-I:9 WITH RESPECT TO THE FINANCING OF AN INDUSTRIAL FACILITY BY THE BUSINESS FINANCE AUTHORITY FOR FELTON BRUSH INC. IN LONDONDERRY" 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 Normand and Streeter; those abstaining were Councilor(s) None; and those voting against were Councilor(s) None. Absent: Griffin. The Governor declared that the resolution was passed.

(4) The Indenture does 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; and

(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:1, 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 industrial Facility will serve a public use and provide a public benefit; and the Governor and Council determine that the Authority's financing of the Project will be within the policy of, and the authority conferred by, the Act.
