Pennsylvania Passes School Choice Legislation

After being on the ground and fighting for education reform for nearly 2 years, our FreedomWorks field team in Pennsylvania received some great news on School Choice as of late Saturday evening, June 30th, when HB761 passed both chambers right before the midnight budget deadline.  Governor Tom Corbett signed the bill into law that same night along with an on-time budget.  A school choice voucher program was one of the Governor's top priorities during his campaign in 2010 and we are thrilled to see movement in the right direction.

Pennsylvania Final Push For School Choice

Yesterday, the FreedomWorks Pennsylvania Field staff, Ana Puig and I, were in Harrisburg pushing HB2468 in the House. This is EITC/EISC program legislation which was introduced last week by Representive Jim Christiana. This legislation will phase in two components of a proposal to enhance school choice options in PA--The successful EITC program and an Educational Scholarship Credit Program (EISC) that is specifically aimed at rescuing students who are attending PA's lowest performing schools.
