REPUBLICAN ATTEMPT TO DIRECT PUBLIC MONEY TO RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS BLOCKED BY NEW HAMPSHIRE HOUSE

CONCORD, NEW HAMPSHIRE – April 8, the New Hampshire House of Representatives failed to reach the required 3/5 needed to pass CACR 3. Following the vote, Representative Dave Luneau (D-Hopkinton) released the following statement:


“Upholding the NH Constitution is our sworn duty as legislators. The fundamental separation of church and state is critical to protecting freedom of religion and CACR 3 is an assault on both the NH Constitution and the freedom of Granite Staters. The “no-aid” clause in our constitution protects that no citizen should be forced to fund someone else’s religious activities or instruction. The test of time has clearly shown allowing taxpayer dollars to be used for religious education is unconstitutional and undemocratic for any reason and this bill would not only violate that protection but also increase taxes on all Granite Staters. Clearly, House Republicans will try every avenue to force taxpayers to fund religious activity and Granite Staters should not look away.”
