Join me for a school choice rally tomorrow night in Concord - details below
As you may recall, last year the House passed CACR 6, a proposed Constitutional Amendment that would require a 3/5 majority of the legislature to pass any new or increased taxes or license fees.
AFP-NH strongly supports this legislation for two reasons –
1) It allows the people of New Hampshire to set the terms about HOW and IF their taxes may be increased.
2) It makes it more difficult for the political whims of any legislature to change fiscal policy and increase taxes to fund their own agenda on the backs of our residents.
Now we have learned that Senate President Peter Bragdon is attempting to circumvent CACR 6 and proposing instead a budget cap that WILL NOT prevent this legislature or any other from raising your taxes.
I encourage you to contact the members of the Senate Internal Affairs Committee and urge them to oppose the Bragdon amendment!
Please see below list of Committee Members and their contact information –
Russell Prescott - (603) 271-4063, firstname.lastname@example.org
Gary Lambert - (603) 271-2609, email@example.com
Jeb Bradley - (603) 271-8472, firstname.lastname@example.org
Sylvia Larsen - (603) 271-3207, email@example.com
The Committee is scheduled to vote on the Bragdon amendment next week so please contact these Senators today!
Separately, I hope you will join our sister organization, Americans for Prosperity Foundation, in supporting good schools, good teachers and putting kids first in New Hampshire education.
The facts stands for themselves: “More than 1 million students drop out of American public schools every year. That works out to more than 6,000 students every day and one student every 26 seconds.”
Stand up for better education this Thursday with Americans for Prosperity Foundation and New Hampshire education experts. We will meet at 7:00 p.m. at the Draft Sports Bar, 67 South Main Street, Concord, NH.
This is a free registered event. You can get your ticket at www.putkidsfirst.com.
If you can’t join us, you can watch our live simulcast here or our FaceBook page this Thursday and Friday.
Be part of the conversation to make sure our children and grandchildren are prepared with the skills and knowledge they need to be ready for life!
