Rep. Carol McGuire is sponsoring a 2017 bill to expand the program that gives businesses a tax credit for donating to a scholarship fund.
Right now the scholarship fund can be used for tuition at private and parochial schools. Homeschooled students can also receive funding.
McGuire’s bill, HB 386, would allow scholarships for college, tutoring, and distance education.
The bill also extends the deadline for making donations and distributing scholarships, which will allow for more donations.
