Measure Text

In February 2007, the Utah Legislature passed H.B. 148, Education Vouchers. This bill will take effect only if approved by voters. The bill: establishes a scholarship program for:
qualifying school-age children who newly enroll in eligible private schools; and lower income school-age children who continue their enrollment in eligible private schools;
provides for scholarships within that program of $500 to $3,000, depending on family size and income, increasing those scholarship amounts in future years; and allows school districts to retain some per-student funding for scholarship students who transfer to private schools. Are you for or against H.B. 148 taking effect?
