Senate Bill 301: Creates Tax Credit for Children Enrolled in Private or Church Schools
Sponsors:
Senators Gerald Allen and Scott Beason
Summary:

This is a tax credit bill for families whose children are enrolled in a private or church school and whose household income is not more than $60,800. The school requirements for the credit are so stringent that only a small percentage, if any, of the church schools would qualify. Further, if the church schools changed their operation in order to meet the requirements for families to receive the credit, the schools would probably become unacceptable to the majority of homeschooling families.

HSLDA's Position:

This bill should not be supported.
