House Republican Leader Reacts to Committee Vote on Bill to Repeal Education Tax Credit

CONCORD – House Republican Leader Dick Hinch (R-Merrimack) reacted to the House Ways & Means committee vote of 10-9 to recommend HB632, repealing the education tax credit, ought to pass.

“Many Democrats, including the committee chair, have a vendetta against this program that helps less fortunate kids. I don’t understand how a party who claims to be pro-education wants to put the kibosh on giving families the opportunity to pursue a personalized education path. The committee heard hours of compelling testimony from dozens of kids that have benefited from this program, and all but one Democrat turned their back on them.”
