Repeal of the voucher tax credit failed in the Senate last year, but the push will be on to repeal it in the next session.  From the Union Leader coverage:

Gov. Maggie Hassan urged lawmakers to repeal the program and like others was disappointed the Supreme Court did not rule on the merits of the law.

“I continue to believe that the voucher tax credit is unconstitutional and am disappointed that the Supreme Court did not rule on the underlying issue. The voucher tax credit is bad public policy for public education in New Hampshire and our taxpayers, diverting millions of dollars in taxpayer money with no accountability or oversight to religious and private schools at the expense of public schools and property taxpayers across the across the state,” Hassan said. “A robust and rigorous public education system is critical to better preparing our students for good jobs and successful careers, and I believe the legislature should repeal this misguided law in order to dedicate more of our limited resources to ensuring access to quality public education for all of our young people.”
