The way that particular article is worded is like a ... well ... word salad. But "encourage" doesn't really mean to me as "equal equity" since how would that be measured? Per student, per teacher, per school? Even if it's the most logical of per student some schools have 1000 students some have 50 and economy of scale means there is no way to get an equal level of funding. Some places are just wasteful afterall.

I tried finding what you're referencing but the first one I could find is [Art.] 6. [Morality and Piety.] at "But no person shall ever be compelled to pay towards the support of the schools of any sect or denomination"

The only other one was [Art.] 83. [Encouragement of Literature, etc.; Control of Corporations, Monopolies, etc.] "Provided, nevertheless, that no money raised by taxation shall ever be granted or applied for the use of the schools of institutions of any religious sect or denomination."?

Perhaps it doesn't reference schools directly?

There hasn't been a good example of a single payer healthcare system. I have family in Canada and follow UK politics regarding NHS and as someone who has had to have non life threatening but very painful urgent care done within hours while seeing my family suffer for months for things that can and did kill them to get even the most basic diagnostics done. No thanks.

If we restricted it to things like broken bones and the most basic healthcare imaginable sure. But we always want to spend millions on saving one person and we simply can't afford that nationally for every single person walking on our dirt. Triage universal health care sure, but that's considered heartless so I just vote no universally.

If it's covered up by a sticker vs the scratch off material that'd be an indication it's been uncovered. They mention "cvs sticker" and every gift card I've ever used had the same material on it as a lottery scratcher. If those could be easily put back on it would destroy the entire gambling scratcher industry.

Yeah and the case was never heard. This is why the legislation was pushed forward because they couldn't get a hearing. This was in response to that if I have my timeline correct.

Article is from March 17, 2022, legislation is June 17, 2022.

Relative to taxation of income of New Hampshire residents when working remotely for an out of state employer.

June 22, 2022: Signed by Governor Sununu 06/17/2022; Chapter 185; eff. 06/17/2022 HJ 14

MA stopped its emergency order but NH didn't care that they weren't doing it anymore and updated their legislation to prevent that sort of abuse in the future.
