HB 174 eliminates New Hampshire Court jurisdiction over adequate education statutes and funding. The New Hampshire Supreme Court ruled that the state has a constitutional obligation to provide an adequate education to all New Hampshire students through several cases known as the Claremont decisions. This bill would retract those rulings and give the General Court the final say on public education funding. 

Sponsors: Rep. Gregory Hill (Merr-03), Rep. Daniel Itse (Rock-10), Sen. Harold French (Dist 7), Sen. Kevin Avard (Dist 12), Sen. Bob Giuda (Dist 2)

*NOTE: This bill will be referred to the Judiciary Committee.
