Governor Bush on NH Tax Credits: A Good Deal for Poor Students

 (Guest Post by Matthew Ladner)

New Hampshire lawmakers will convene tomorrow in special session, with one of the items on the agenda being an attempt to override Governor Lynch’s veto of a scholarship tax credit. Governor Bush explains in the Concord Monitor today why the program deserves support.

Money quote:

Americans of all philosophical backgrounds desire schools designed to give all children – even those who start with the least – the best possible chance at success. The American dream of equality of opportunity will not be nearly fulfilled unless those less advantaged are given more power over where their children go to school.

New Hampshire will be a better and stronger state if the Legislature overrides the governor’s veto.

  1. We are working hard to get the votes to override, however I have NO trust in Bush. The fact that he supports this has me concerned. This is the same person who thinks nationalizing standards was a good idea.
    I’d prefer he keep his nose out of this. We do not appreciate the feds in our classrooms and he supports that nonsense.
