Part of the proposed NH budget deal may include funding for full day kindergarten .
The bill would use the Keno lottery game to generate money that would go to the state education fund. The money from that fund could then be used to support full-day kindergarten and other education-related programs. Keno could generate about $12 million per year, which is about what full-day kindergarten funding would cost under the new bill.
Senate Majority Leader Jeb Bradley, R-Wolfeboro, sponsored the “Keno-garten” amendment.
