$4 Million Dollars To Be Returned To Bedford Taxpayers
May 11, 2017
(Bedford, NH) - Today, Bedford Republican Town Committee Chairman Valerie Earnshaw and State Representative Keith Murphy released the following statements regarding the Superior Court Ruling and legislation passed to have the New Hampshire Department of Education pay back more than $4 Million to the town of Bedford.
"This is huge win for our community. Our town should have received over $8 million from the Department of Education but only received half until now. It's sad to interject the courts into the system to get what is ours but in this case the courts ruled in favor of local communities and local control," said Chairman Valerie Earnshaw
"The courts ruled the state's cap on adequacy grants to public schools unconstitutional and upholding the constitution is priority one for all state officials and agencies."
State Rep. David Bates penned legislation (HB 354) which was co-sponsored by Bedford Reps. Keith Murphy and Linda Gould. The bill provides that the towns be paid what the state owes them. State Representative Keith Murphy "I was proud to sponsor this legislation along with several other Republican legislators, including Rep. Linda Gould," said Bedford Rep. Keith Murphy. "The average Bedford homeowner will see a reduction of about $500 in their property taxes this year alone. Smaller, cost-effective government and local control is what we stand for as Republicans."
