REPUBLICAN POLITICANS VOTE TO RAISE PROPERTY TAXES

CONCORD, N.H. Today, during the New Hampshire House session, conservatives in the House voted for a budget that would dramatically cut education funding and raise property taxes for Granite Staters who need relief.  AFT-NH President Doug Ley released the following statement:

“As a  union that represents thousands of educators across New Hampshire we know and see the educational inadequacies in our state. Two years ago, legislators prioritized education funding especially to those cities and towns that need our help the most. Today, conservative politicians in the legislature passed a budget that dramatically cuts education funding and instead of focusing on assisting property poor towns it widens the divide by giving back more money to wealthy communities.  This budget does nothing to increase educational opportunities and instead punishes those who need our help the most.”
