lets look at how many lives you saved from freezing to death or starving to
death on Americas streets...Can you truthfully bring forward one?
Thank you Presidential candidate Al Gore.
Also do you plan on endorsing any action plan to end homelessness and

additional raise—from $4.75 to $5.15 -- on September 1, 1997.
    g.. A $500 Child Tax Credit to Help Families Raising Children: To help
make it easier for families to raise their children, the balanced budget
included a $500 per-child tax credit for children under 17. Thanks to
President Clinton, the Balanced Budget delivers a child tax credit to
130,000 families in New Hampshire.
    h.. Homeownership Has Increased in New Hampshire: Homeownership in New
Hampshire has increased from 65.7% to 70.2% since 1993.

    k.. Over $25,000 of Reduced Federal Debt for Every Family of Four: The
national debt will be $1.7 trillion lower in FY99 than projected in 1993 --

previous administration.
  EXPANDING ACCESS TO EDUCATION
    a.. Over 1,400 Children in Head Start: 1,425 New Hampshire children were
enrolled in Head Start in 1999. In FY00, New Hampshire will receive $10.2
million in Head Start funding, an increase of $5.2 million over 1993.
    b.. More High-Quality Teachers With Smaller Classes for New Hampshire's
Schools: Thanks to the Class Size Reduction Initiative, New Hampshire
received $5.6 million in 1999 to hire about 145 new, well-prepared public
school teachers and reduce class size in the early grades. President Clinton
secured funding for a second installment of the plan, giving New Hampshire
an additional $6.1 million in 2000.
    c.. $1.6 Million in Goals 2000 Funding: This year [FY00], New Hampshire
receives nearly $1.6 million in Goals 2000 funding. This money is used to
raise academic achievement by raising academic standards, increasing
parental and community involvement in education, expanding the use of
computers and technology in classrooms, and supporting high-quality teacher
professional development. [Education Department, 12/3/99]
    d.. $2.1 Million for Technology Literacy: This year [FY00], New
Hampshire receives $2.1 million for the Technology Literacy Challenge Fund
which helps communities and the private sector ensure that every student is
equipped with the computer literacy skills needed for the 21st century.
    e.. $19.9 Million for Students Most in Need: New Hampshire receives
$19.9 million in Title I Grants (to Local Educational Agencies) providing
extra help in the basics for students most in need, particularly communities
and schools with high concentrations of children in low-income families
[FY00]. This includes over $340,000 in accountability grants, to help states
and school districts turn around the worst performing schools and hold them
accountable for results.
    f.. $22.1 Million in Pell Grants: This year [FY00], New Hampshire will
receive $22.1 million in Pell Grants for low-income students going to
college, benefiting 12,065 New Hampshire students.
    g.. Expanded Work-Study To Help More Students Work Their Way Through
College: The FY00 budget includes a significant expansion of the Federal
Work Study program. New Hampshire will receive $6.4 million in Work-Study
funding in 2000 to help New Hampshire students work their way through
college.
    h.. Nearly 1,500 Have Served in New Hampshire through AmeriCorps: Since
the National Service program began in 1993, 1,494 AmeriCorps participants
have earned money for college while working in New Hampshire's schools,
hospitals, neighborhoods or parks. [through 2/00]
    i.. Tuition Tax Credits in Balanced Budget Open the Doors of College and
Promote Lifelong Learning: The balanced budget included both President
Clinton's $1,500 HOPE Scholarship to help make the first two years of
college as universal as a high school diploma and a Lifetime Learning Tax
Credit for college juniors, seniors, graduate students and working Americans
pursuing lifelong learning to upgrade their skills. This 20% tax credit will
be applied to the first $5,000 of tuition and fees through 2002 and to the
first $10,000 thereafter. 24,000 students in New Hampshire will receive a
HOPE Scholarship tax credit of up to $1,500. 29,000 students in New
Hampshire will receive the Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. [fully phased-in
FY2000 estimate]
    j.. Expanded Job Training to New Hampshire's Dislocated Workers: Thanks
to President Clinton, the FY99 budget includes a significant expansion in
the dislocated worker program. New Hampshire will receive $2.4 million in
1999 to help 1,400 of New Hampshire's dislocated workers get the training
and reemployment services they need to return to work as quickly as
possible.
  FIGHTING CRIME AND VIOLENCE
    a.. Crime Falls 10% in New Hampshire: Under the Clinton-Gore
Administration, America has experienced the longest continuous drop in crime
on record. Since 1992, serious crime in New Hampshire has fallen 10%.
Violent crime and property crime have also fallen 5% and 10% respectively.
    b.. 421 More Police: The President's 1994 Crime Bill has funded 421 new
police officers to date in communities across New Hampshire. [through 1/00]
    c.. Over $6.4 Million to Combat Domestic Violence: Through the Violence
Against Women Act, New Hampshire has received over $6.4 million in federal
funds since FY95 to establish more women's shelters and bolster law
enforcement, prosecution and victims' services. [through FY99]
    d.. $400,000 in Grants for Battered Women: In FY99, New Hampshire
received $400,000 in HHS's Family Violence Prevention Program grants to
assist women and children fleeing domestic abuse.
    e.. $2.2 Million to Keep Drugs & Violence Out of New Hampshire's
Schools: New Hampshire receives $2.2 million in FY00 for the Safe & Drug
Free Schools Program, which invests in school security and drug prevention
programs.
  MOVING NEW HAMPSHIRE RESIDENTS FROM WELFARE TO WORK
    a.. 13,556 Fewer People on Welfare: There are 13,556 fewer people on
welfare in New Hampshire now than there were at the beginning of 1993 -- a
47% decrease. [through 6/99]
    b.. Child Support Collections Up 123%: Child support collections have
increased by $34 million—or 123% -- in New Hampshire since FY92. [through
FY98]
    c.. Encouraging Responsible Choices—Preventing Teen Pregnancy in New
Hampshire: Since 1993, President Clinton and Vice President Gore have
supported innovative and promising teen pregnancy prevention strategies,
with significant components of the strategy becoming law in the 1996
Personal Responsibility Act. The law requires unmarried minor parents to
stay in school and live at home or in a supervised setting; encourages
“second chance homes” to provide teen parents with the skills and support
they need; and provides $50 million a year in new funding for state
abstinence education activities. Efforts are making a difference, adolescent
pregnancy rates and teen abortion rates are declining. And between 1991 and
1997, teen birth rates declined 14.1% in New Hampshire.
    d.. $5.1 Million for New Hampshire Welfare-to-Work: In 1998, New
Hampshire received $2.8 million in Federal welfare-to-work state formula
grants (the state matched $1.4 million in funding), helping New Hampshire
welfare recipients get and keep jobs. In addition, $1.0 million in
competitive grants were awarded to New Hampshire localities to support
innovative welfare-to-work strategies. Part of the President's comprehensive
efforts to move recipients from welfare to work, this funding was included
in the $3 billion welfare to work fund in the 1997 Balanced Budget Act.
  INVESTING IN NEW HAMPSHIRE'S HEALTH


    a.. Health Care for Over 4,500 Uninsured New Hampshire Children: In
1997, President Clinton passed the largest single investment in health care
for children since 1965 -- an unprecedented $24 billion over five years to
cover as many as five million children throughout the nation. This
investment guarantees the full range of benefits that children need to grow
up strong and healthy. Two million children nationwide have health care
coverage thanks to the President's plan, including 4,554 in New Hampshire.
[HHS, Health Care Financing Administration, FY99 SCHIP enrollment data]
    b.. Helping Over 18,000 New Hampshire Women and Children with WIC: The
Clinton Administration is committed to full funding in the Special Nutrition
Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC). In FY99, New Hampshire
received $9.7 million in total WIC grant funding, helping 18,132 women,
infants and children in need receive health and food assistance. [through
8/99]
    c.. More Toddlers Are Being Immunized: As a result of the President's
1993 Childhood Immunization Initiative, childhood immunization rates have
reached an historic high. According to the CDC, 90% or more of America's
toddlers received the most critical doses of each of the routinely
recommended vaccines in 1996, 1997, and again in 1998 —surpassing the
President's 1993 goal. In New Hampshire in 1998, 99% of two-year olds
received the vaccines for diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis; 92% received the
vaccine for polio; 95% received the vaccine for measles, and 95% received
the vaccine for Haemophilus influenzae B, the bacteria causing a form of
meningitis.
    d.. Funding for HIV/AIDS Assistance Programs: In FY 2000, New Hampshire
will receive $317,246 in Ryan White Title II formula grants. This funding
provides people living with HIV and AIDS medical and support services. Also
through the Ryan White Act, New Hampshire will receive $610,476 for state
AIDS Drug Assistance Programs (ADAPs), which help those without insurance
obtain much needed prescription drugs. There has been a tenfold increase in
ADAP funding in the last four years, up from $52 million in 1996 to $528
million in 2000. [HHS, Health Resources and Services Administration, 4/7/00]
    e.. Tobacco Plan Will Cut Smoking and Premature Deaths by 45% in New
Hampshire: The Clinton Administration's tobacco proposal, combined with the
recently enacted state tobacco settlements, will cut youth smoking and
resulting premature deaths 45% in New Hampshire by 2004. Between 2000 and
2004, 15,600 of New Hampshire's youth will be kept from smoking and 5,000
will be spared a premature tobacco-related death. [Treasury Dept., 2/99]
    f.. 610,000 Americans in New Hampshire Cannot Be Assured They Have
Patient Protections: Even if New Hampshire enacted all the protections in
the Patients' Bill of Rights, 610,000 people in New Hampshire cannot be
assured they have the comprehensive patient protections recommended by the
President's Advisory Commission. This is because the Employee Retirement
Income Security Act (ERISA) may preempt state-enacted protections. That is
why the President has called on Congress to pass a federally enforceable
patients' bill of rights so that everyone enrolled in managed care may have
a basic set of protections. Notably, 290,000 New Hampshire women are in
ERISA health plans and are therefore not necessarily protected. Women are
particularly vulnerable without these protections because they are greater
users of health care services, they make three-quarters of the health care
decisions for their families, and they have specific health care needs
addressed by a patients' bill of rights.
  PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT
    a.. 8 Toxic Waste Sites Cleaned Up: Since 1993, the EPA has completed 8
Superfund toxic waste cleanups in New Hampshire. These sites are located in
Greenland, Barrington, Conway, Epping, Raymond, Peterborough, and
Londonderry (2). That is four times the number of sites cleaned up in New
Hampshire during the previous two administrations combined. [through 3/1/00]
    b.. $7.7 Million in Safe Drinking Water Funding: This year [FY00],
thanks to President Clinton, New Hampshire will receive $7.7 million for the
Drinking Water State Revolving Funds to provide low-interest loans to
municipalities to build, improve, and prevent pollution of drinking water
systems.
    c.. Revitalizing Brownfields in New Hampshire: As part of the
Clinton-Gore Administration's efforts to clean up Brownfields, the EPA has
awarded grants to the community of Concord, as well as communities
encompassed by the State of New Hampshire Coastal Piscataqua—Dover, Durham,
Exeter, Newmarket, Rochester, and Somersworth, and the communities
encompassed by the State of New Hampshire Watershed—for environmental
clean-up and economic revitalization. In addition, EPA grant funds will be
sent to the State of New Hampshire to help other small municipalities. This
project is intended to jump-start local clean-up efforts by providing funds
to return unproductive, abandoned, contaminated urban properties to
productive use.
  SPEARHEADING URBAN RENEWAL EFFORTS
    a.. Revitalizing New Hampshire's Communities: Manchester was designated
an Enterprise Community in December 1994 and was awarded $3 million to
create more jobs, housing, and economic opportunity for area residents.
  PROVIDING DISASTER RELIEF
    a.. Over $28 Million in Federal Emergency Assistance: Since 1993, New
Hampshire has received over $28 million in disaster relief. This includes
$1.1 million in assistance for Tropical Storm Floyd in 1999; $14 million in
assistance for severe ice storms, rain and strong winds in 1998; and $5.6
million in disaster relief aide to help New Hampshire recover from severe
flooding that occurred in October of 1996. [FEMA, 2/29/00]
  EXPANDING FUNDS FOR TRANSPORTATION IMPROVEMENT
    a.. $369 Million in Federal Highway Aid: Since 1993, New Hampshire has
received $369 million in federal highway aid, including $400,000 for
emergency relief in response to natural disasters and $5.4 million for
scenic byways. These funds have helped generate 15,262 jobs. [through FY99]
    b.. Over $82.4 Million in Aviation Funds: From FY93-FY99 New Hampshire
received over $82.4 million in Airport Improvement Program funds to help
build and renovate airports, and, when necessary, to provide funds for noise
abatement to improve the quality of life for residents who live near
airports.
    c.. Over $31 Million in Transit Funds: Since 1993, the Federal Transit
Administration has provided over $31 million of funding to support mass
transportation in New Hampshire. Many of the FTA funded projects in New
Hampshire benefit the State's large rural population and elderly persons
without cars who heavily rely on transit for their medical and shopping
needs.
    d.. Saving Lives and Property: In 1999, the United States Coast Guard
saved 13 lives and $2.2 million of property in New Hampshire.
