Manchester, NH – After the New Hampshire Supreme Court decided earlier today not to rule on the constitutionality of the reckless and irresponsible education voucher law, New Hampshire Democratic Party Chairman Ray Buckley issued the following statement:
“It is disappointing that the New Hampshire Supreme Court refused to rule on the reckless, fiscally irresponsible and unconstitutional education voucher law that could dismantle New Hampshire public schools.
“Already, two lower courts have found the law to be in violation of the state's constitution.
“This disastrous education voucher law funnels public funding to unaccountable out of state right-wing groups bent on destroying our public education system and hampers our state's ability to provide Granite State students the education they deserve.
“The education voucher law also irresponsibly shifts burdensome costs to local communities and forces property tax payers to foot the bill.
“Republicans like Walt Havenstein and Andrew Hemingway who support this misguided and right-wing education voucher law will have to answer to Granite State voters why they want to raise their property taxes and undermine their public education.”
