On January 3 and 4, one of the first actions of our NH Legislators will be to vote on retained bills from the 2017 session. You may want to voice your opinion on the following bills before January 3.
THIS IS A RIGHT TO KNOW ISSUE
HB 471, Abortion Statistics: Support Committee Report of “Ought to Pass with Amendment”
The House Health and Human Services Committee has recommended passage of an abortion statistics bill, HB 471. YES on HB 471 will allow more transparency about these statistics for New Hampshire, which is one of only three states that don’t report information about abortion to the federal Centers for Disease Control.
THIS IS AN EDUCATIONAL CHOICE ISSUE
SB 193, Education Savings Accounts: Support Committee Report of “Ought to Pass with Amendment”
A YES vote on the OTP/A motion for SB 193 will allow for Education Savings Accounts, (ESAs) which are restricted-use accounts that families may use for approved educational purposes including private school tuition, textbooks, tutoring, online learning, special needs services, dual enrollment programs, and certain homeschooling expenses, to move forward.
