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.

The Foundation should take a lot of pride in your influence on Georgia governmental policy over the past several years. If you look back on several things that you were crying in the wilderness about several years ago, you will find that Governor Miller adopted them…your influence and your pressure on that process has been a major factor in governmental policy in Georgia. You should be congratulated.
