CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A bill requiring students in the university and community college systems of New Hampshire to pass a civics naturalization test as part of their diploma requirements passed the House by one vote on Thursday.
The measure passed by a vote of 188-187. The House previously passed a similar measure that requires high school students to pass the assessment. If it becomes law, students who passed the test wouldn't have to take it again in college. The Senate passed the high school bill on Thursday, and now will take up the college one.
