Nonini Pushes Private School Credit

Sen. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d’Alene, is proposing a new version of his unsuccessful bill from last year to grant a tax credit for donations to scholarships for Idaho students to attend to private schools, saying the move will save money by having fewer students enroll in Idaho public schools. “This particular piece of legislation has a projected state savings of $3.3 million, and a projected local savings of $2.49 million, for a total overall savings of $5.8 million dollars,” Nonini told the House Rev & Tax Committee this morning/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: Do you support/oppose this bill? Why?
