Senate Committee refuses to back HB 370; full Senate will vote soon

A NH Senate committee yesterday said no to the repeal of New Hampshire’s tax credit for businesses that donate to a scholarship program for the benefit of K-12 students. The school choice measure was enacted January 1 by action of the previous legislature, and its repeal via HB 370 was a priority for the new Democratic majority.

An earlier post (now removed) said that the full Senate had voted. That was incorrect, and I regret the error. The Senate will vote on HB 370 later this month. For now, the bill is one step closer to being killed, and the tax credit for now stays in place.
