The New Hampshire House voted to reject one of Governor Sununu’s top legislative priority of the session, the SB193 school voucher bill. This was great news for local schools and local tax payers.
BUT, the bill’s not dead yet. On May 3rd, Senate Republicans attached the same school voucher bill to a different bill, HB 1636, sending it back to the House for concurrence.
This past week, the State Senate voted to pass HB 1264 – targeting young eligible voters. With this vote, they moved twin bills HB1264 and HB372 closer to Governor Sununu’s desk.
Instead of paving the way for eligible people to participate in our elections, New Hampshire’s HB372 and HB1264 put up more red tape so that eligible people have a hard time casting their ballots.
HB 1542 – Campus Carry which would remove the authority of any state college or university system to regulate the carrying of weapons on their premises. See bill’s text at: http://gencourt.state.nh.us/lsr_search/billText.aspx?id=1112&type=4
Tell the Senate to vote NO on HB372!
Last week, Republicans passed an amendment to HB 372 along party lines in the Senate Election Law Committee. This bill would enact a de facto poll tax in New Hampshire by requiring voters to declare residency and acquire a license upon registering to vote. This is a BLATANT attack on students’ legal right to vote in New Hampshire, an effort clearly designed to help Republicans win elections they know they can’t win on a level playing field.
We must fight back!
