The House Voted to Refer the bill for Interim Study on a 233-97 Roll Call vote on 5/2. From AFSC: "We have stepped forward and taken responsibility for publicizing this wrong-headed bill. In an op-ed that we hope will soon grace the pages of the state’s largest newspaper, we pointed out that “not a single member of the public testified in favor of the bill at either the Senate or House hearings. Opposing the bill were representatives of many faith communities, the NH Council of Churches, and teachers and administrators from adult education programs in Dover, Portsmouth, Keene, Nashua, Manchester, and Concord.” Learn more at website to the right.


audioFrom SC 9: The committee said this bill would prohibit the university system and community college system from distributing statefunded financial assistance to any student who is not a legal resident of the United States. The bill would also limit the availability of adult education programs funded by state or local sources to legal residents of the state of New Hampshire. This legislation fails to recognize lawful noncitizens, such as green card holders and asylum seekers, who must wait a certain period of time in order to gain legal resident status. The Committee believes that it is unfair and unnecessary to deprive these adults of educational services while they seek to achieve legal resident statuswww.wnhnfm.org/state-house-watch-april-2-2018/
