Senate passes funding boost for private school scholarships
The bill’s proponents argue the program allows low-income students to go to the school of their choice, including religious schools.
But public education groups have opposed the program because it siphons funds from the state government for private education.
Republicans broadly supported the proposal, which would raise the tax credit’s cap to $3.5 million.
It’s the third time the cap has been raised. The bill will next head to the House.
