Public Hearing on HB 1652 in the House Education Committee

January 22 @ 10:15 am - 11:00 am

ACTION REQUESTED: Please sign in against HB 1652 being heard in House Education on Monday, January 22nd at 10:15am.

HB 1652 would bring back a similarly failed bill from last year that would create the ability for a school district to adopt a local school district voucher program. Local school district taxpayers that voted in this program would be required to fund a voucher account worth twice the state aid they would have received from the state for that child attending the local district school. As we know, the bulk of education funding comes from our local property taxes already, not the state, making this sort of voucher program very consequential if adopted by a local community.

Please urge the House Education Committee to reject the use of local property taxes to expand the school voucher program.
