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.

When I served four terms in the state Senate, one of the few places where you could go to always and get concrete information about real solutions was the Georgia Public Policy Foundation. That hasn’t changed. [The Foundation] is really right up there at the top of the state think tanks, so you should be very proud of the work that they are doing!
