KEVIN SMITH COMMENTS ON EDUCATION FUNDING CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT

MANCHESTER, NH – Republican candidate for Governor Kevin Smith released the following statement in regards to the agreement reached on an education funding Constitutional amendment:

 

"I am pleased that House and Senate leadership and the Governor have reached an agreement on a Constitutional amendment to address New Hampshire's education funding issue. If adopted, this amendment will take control of education funding away from the courts and put it back into the hands of elected lawmakers. It is an essential first step in addressing the education funding needs of the Granite State. However, even if this amendment passes the House and Senate and is approved by voters in November, there is much more to be done to improve education. As Governor, I will work to ensure that communities are receiving the resources they need to properly educate our children, and to enable greater educational opportunities for families and children across the state."—Kevin Smith
