School Choice Bill Scrapped
03/26/2013

The Kansas House has defeated legislation that would have established a school choice scholarship program funded by corporate donations.
 
     House members voted 63-56 Monday against advancing the bill to final action.
 
     The measure would have let parents of low-income or special needs children in elementary or secondary grades apply for scholarships to send their children to private or parochial schools.
 
     Corporations would receive tax credits for contributions to a qualifying scholarship-granting organization. The program would have been capped at $10 million annually.
