From the Legislator

Amazing x..you are doing the same ...I.e by the so-called other interest groups..which I have not received any email from....only groups like you.

All I can say is ..."June 2002, the United States Supreme Court ruled that school vouchers are a Constitutional way to put parents back in charge.

And, also. on Monday, April 4th, 2011 the following was rendered in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Brought to the U.S. Supreme court by the ACLU; the majority of the Justice's ruled in favor of Arizona, and upholding its ruling on April 4th, 2011, and on Monday's 5-4 ruling expands  long-standing court precedents that citizens don't have standing to legally challenge taxes they don't like simply because they're taxpayers. 

The decision, written by Justice Anthony Kennedy and joined by the court's more conservative members, preserves Arizona's school voucher program that is funded by tax credits offered to state taxpayers.

As a New Hampshire State Legislator, I took and out to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution and the New Hampshire Constitution.

Response

Vouchers may or may not be constitutional in New Hampshire, but our objection is on the substance rather than the legality.  We think that a tax credit funded voucher program builds a costly and unnecessary alternative to our public school system.  And it does not get better results than our public schools do, so it does not provide enough public benefit to be worth the many millions in public cost.
