Restricting Voting Rights
Thursday, May 10th / House / Full Vote
HOUSE – HB 1264, making it harder for eligible young voters by establishing a modern-day poll tax
Why this matters: HB 1264 and HB 372, are twin bills that are designed to disenfranchise young eligible voters by instituting a modern-day poll tax. Last week, the Senate voted on party lines in favor of HB 1264. It now heads to the House for concurrence where it will either be passed and sent to the Governor’s desk, passed and sent to Committee of Conference, or killed.
Take Action: Call your State Representatives and tell them to oppose HB 1264 and sign THIS PETITION to urge Sununu to veto these bills.

HOUSE – HB 1636, creating a school voucher program
Why this matters: On Thursday, the Senate added the language of Sununu’s failed SB 193 as an amendment to HB 1636. It now heads back to the House for a THIRD vote. This voucher language would divert millions from public schools to unregulated private, religious, and parochial schools. It has been one of Sununu’s biggest legislative priorities, which is why we need to keep up the pressure to save our public schools.
Take Action: Call your State Representative to urge them to oppose HB 1636.
