Arizona: Governor Brewer Signs Tuition Tax Credit Expansion!!!

Governor Brewer Signs Tuition Tax Credit Expansion!!!
 
The Arizona Catholic Conference (ACC) is extremely pleased that today Governor Jan Brewer signed into law important legislation (SB 1047) that will essentially double the amount people can contribute in the tuition (scholarship) tax credit program.
Specifically, SB 1047 expands the current tuition tax credit limits of $500 for individuals and $1,000 for married couples to $1,000 and $2,000 respectively.
The new donations are targeted toward students switching from public to private schools.
SB 1047 is designed this way to not only help many more children, but also to save the state money as the average tax credit scholarship is far less than the cost it would be to educate them in public school.
The ACC is grateful to all of the legislators who voted for this important bill, especially Senator Rick Murphy who was the bill’s sponsor. We are also very appreciative of all the grassroots support and prayer we received in response to our legislative updates and action alerts on this bill.
Please take a moment to personally thank Governor Brewer for signing this bill and supporting school choice expansion in Arizona by sending a note on her website http://www.azgovernor.gov/Contact.aspor by calling 602 542-4331.
