The Senate passed SB 193 on Thursday in a 14-9 vote.
The bill creates education savings accounts for all students ages 5-20. Under the bill, 90% of the adequacy funding (approximately $3,600) would be placed in an independently managed scholarship fund for the student. Parents or guardians could then use those funds to pay for private school tuition, homeschooling expenses, and other academic expenses.
The bill now goes to the House Education Committee.
