CORBIN OFFERS SOLUTION TO EDUCATIONCRISIS
Sandown- District 17 State Senate candidate Corey Corbin (D-Sandown) today offered a solution to the education funding crisis in response to the Supreme Judicial Court's decision this morning.
"Once again, Gatsas and company in the Senate have caused a rejection of an education funding law. Barnes is part of this problem. He promised to solve this in 2004 and guess what, he hasn't. I have a plan that will work," stated Corbin.
Corbin's plan includes an adequacy commission, made up of legislators, parents and educators to define adequacy. Once a definition is reached, the second part of Corbin's plan would allow the operation of 5000 video lottery terminals at New Hampshire's 4 commercial racetracks to pay for it.
"Thisis the ONLY solution that will work - we've spent over 15 years trying to solvethis thing, with no results. Myplan is real, and viable and will work if we have the courage to implementit," said Corbin.
