~~The Nevada legislature just passed Assembly Bill 165, which would create an income based tuition tax credit program for students to attend private school. Tuition tax credits are a type of backdoor private school vouchers, which funnel taxpayer money away from Nevada public schools and fund primarily religious schools, violating our country’s commitment to the separation of church and state. The bill will now go to Governor Sandoval for his signature or veto.
Governor Sandoval is using the bill as a stepping stone to fund religious schools. He has been trying to fund religious schools since he took office.
