CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Gov. Maggie Hassan has signed a bill that modernizes securities regulations in New Hampshire, with the goal of making it easier for businesses to start up and grow.

The Uniform Securities Act was signed into law Monday afternoon.

Hassan said the measure helps focus on investor protection and reduce hurdles for businesses trying to raise capital, while balancing the state’s interest in regulating securities transactions.

The regulations were a goal of the Live Free and Start initiative, a group trying to help business startups in technology and other fields.
