"Charter schools and their supporters took one of the biggest hits in the House approved budget package. They haven't taken that kind of hit in a long time. Not only did the House strip out the $2.5 million in funding for new charter school...s Hassan included in her budget proposal, the House added a moratorium on any new charter schools.
While the state board suspended applications for new schools, it did not officially declare a moratorium. The House beat back attempts to reverse those changes along with another requiring state audits every three years."
