“Last week, Gov. Jan Brewer kept Arizona out front in innovative education reform. Gov. Brewer’s signature on SB 1047 will help students on private school scholarship waiting lists finally realize their dream of attending their school of choice.
This doubles the cap on tax credits individuals and married couples can receive for donations to tuition scholarship organizations, but the new law directs any contributions over $503 ($1,006 for married couples) to be used for students switching from public schools to private schools. This will ensure that scholarships are given to children who wouldn’t otherwise attend private school, and it saves the state money.”
