Sen. Stiles Statement on Passage of Scholarship Repeal Bill 

The New Hampshire Senate

Majority Office

"Today's action by the House is premature" 

Concord, NH – Sen. Nancy Stiles, R-Hampton, issued the following statement today after the House of Representatives voted to repeal the School Choice Scholarship Program enacted last year:

“Today's action by the House is premature, and as this bill moves to the Senate I will not support a repeal.  The School Choice Scholarship Program has garnered significant interest from students, parents, and business owners who applied to it based on their understanding of the law.  I believe we should allow the program and these applicants this opportunity before voting to repeal program that has yet to even begin.”
