NH House Republican Alliance comments on HB299 vote in Finance

The NH House Finance today recommended Inexpedient to Legislate (ITL) on HB 299 which would have removed a moratorium on Charter Schools.  HRA co-chair Pam Tucker stated, "HB 299 would have funded our public charter schools and given more choices in education to our students.  This terrible party line decision jeopardizes the future of new charter schools in our state and federal funding we might receive for existing schools.  While members of the house preach they want excellence in education, these actions state exactly the opposite."
