NH bills to curb education accounts, expand meals expected to fail

The New Hampshire House is returning Wednesday for a two-day bill voting session. Since members last met in early January to take up holdover legislation, hundreds of bills have moved through committees.

Here are some of the floor votes to watch for from House Education. 

Education freedom accounts

The House is likely to vote down a pair Democratic-led bills intended to curb the new “education freedom account” program, which allows New Hampshire families to use public education dollars toward private and home-schooling expenses. Democrats, who have strongly opposed the program on the basis that it will prove costly and divert money from the Education Trust Fund, have introduced House Bill 1684, which would cap the total amount the state could send out in education freedom account grants to $3.3 million in its second year.
