Opportunity Scholarship Act Under Review

By Zachary Fink

The Assembly Commerce and Economic Development Committee is considering the Opportunity Scholarship Act which gives tax credits to corporations and other entities that provide scholarships to students to attend parochial and private schools.  Last month, the Senate Budget Committee passed a version of the bill that provides 40,000 scholarships for students in 166 schools spread across 13 districts.  The Assembly version is different offering fewer scholarships.
