CONCORD - Today, the Joint Legislative Finance Committee tabled a federal grant intended to fund the expansion of charter schools.

After the vote, Committee Chair Representative Mary Jane Wallner (D-Concord) and committee member Senator Lou D’Allesandro (D-Manchester) issued the following statement:

“Commissioner Edelblut may have made cosmetic changes but this is still the same proposal Fiscal has twice rejected due to concerns over the sustainability of the funding which have been exacerbated by President Trump’s move to slash this program in his budget proposal. Furthermore, Senator Bradley has filed a late bill relative to the Department of Education’s ability to accept federal funds and we must allow that legislative process to play out.”
