Increase sought in Ga. Tax Credit Scholarships

February 6th, 2014 by 2 Comments

School choice: The $58 million donation cap for Georgia’s tax-credit scholarship program was reached just 22 days into the new tax year. As a result of this overwhelming demand to help Georgia parents choose private education, legislation has been introduced in the Georgia General Assembly to increase the cap to $100 million.

By comparison, Florida’s tax-credit scholarship program, the nation’s largest, is capped at $286.25 million. It was established in 2001.

Thank you for what you are doing to lead the nation. The Georgia Public Policy Foundation is leading the way. This is truly one of the leading lights in the state think tank movement. Excellent ideas. It’s well run. For those of you who are donors I congratulate you on your wisdom and I encourage you to do it and do it more.
