8:18 am
they've replaced it and according to you and some of your sources this is going to be significant for new hampshire? >> yeah, there was just, congress just passed a bipartisan reauthoritization of the elementary and secondary education act which replaces no child left behind with every child succeeds. that's going to be a major shift now states are allowed to spend federal dollars and we think that congress is likely to take up the reauthorization of the higher education act next year. and there's an election year going on so that may impact some of that. >> really? >> you may have heard about that. >> we did. but, obviously, for higher ed costs, debt, and accountability are going to be the three big issues for next year. >> dave, the state legislature, we talked about medicaid expansion in the 6:00 hour, let's talk about energy. we have a pipeline, a gas pipeline going through southern new hampshire, at least proposed which is contentious and of course, the northern pass, the hydro electric line from canada

8:20 am
20 to 40% of the population, of the county you go into. they will be by 2030. what does that do for education, economy? ments for education, it's a pipeline question, who is going to be in the pipeline of students coming out of our k-12 school systems and out of the other new england states who are going to fill the doors at our colleges and universities and that's who is going to be available to go to work in the companies in new hampshire who have the skills and the education that business say they need. >> of course, a number of the school age children are down 7% since 2000 which feeds into that, too, russ? >> i think that really, we need young people who move into the state and stay into the state in order to keep the energy level high in our innovative economy. so it's been a problem in new hampshire now for about ten years, we haven't had good migration, we've had out migration of young people and hopefully now with a better job
