At approximately 10:50 a.m., the Governor announced that the next matter to be considered would be the award of a State guarantee under the Guaranteed Asset Program of the Business Finance Authority in connection with a loan to be made by GE Capital Small Business Finance Corporation to AST Realty Corporation and Technical Research Manufacturing, Inc. and declared that the public hearing on the subject had commenced. He said that he and the members of the Council had received written material from the Authority with respect to the proposed loans and State guarantee. The Governor then said that the meeting would hear anyone wishing to speak on the subject and introduced Frank J. Lass, Senior Credit Officer of the Authority who briefly explained the project and introduced Michael Sack of GE Capital and Tony Tirrolo of AST Realty Corp. Councilor Griffin questioned the credit approval being seven names listed but only three signed approvals. Mr. Lass explained that only three yes votes were needed for Credit Committee approval and the Board of Directors unanimously voted in the affirmative on this credit. Councilor Griffin indicated she would vote no because of the three votes. Councilor Spaulding questioned GE Capital on being an authorized lender because they were not listed in the Bank Directory. Mr. Lass indicated that Attorney David Howe of Rath & Young confirmed GE being an authorized financial institution. The Governor then repeated that the proceedings were a public hearing and asked whether any other person wished to speak; there being none, Councilor Rinker introduced a resolution entitled "A RESOLUTION UNDER RSA 162-A:18 AWARDING A STATE GUARANTEE UNDER RSA 162-A:13 WITH RESPECT TO A LOAN FROM GE CAPITAL SMALL BUSINESS FINANCE CORPORATION TO AST REALTY CORPORATION AND TECHNICAL RESEARCH MANUFACTURING, INC. and moved its adoption, which was seconded by Councilor Burton.
