CONCORD - Today, Senator Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) introduced SB 130 to the Senate Education Committee. SB 130 is a near mirror bill to HB 20 which was unanimously retained by the House Education Committee.
After the hearing, committee members Senator Jay Kahn (D-Keene) and Senator Sue Prentiss (D-West Lebanon) issued the following statement:
“New Hampshire overwhelmingly rejects the idea of a school voucher program. SB 130 is a dangerously flawed piece of legislation that diverts public taxpayer dollars away from our public schools and to private, religious, and out-of-state institutions with no real plan for quality oversight. Investing in our public school system gives every student the opportunity to grow, learn, and thrive. SB 130 is wrong for our students and wrong for New Hampshire.”
