School Choice Bill Becomes Law Without Governor’s Signature
Montana lawmakers have instituted a new state law that reflects a national GOP initiative to boost private education options. Senate Bill 410, one of six Republican “school choice” proposals this year, became law on Friday without Democratic Gov. Steve Bullock’s signature. The pilot program will provide income-tax credits for donations of up to $150 made to scholarships for private K-12 education or “innovative educational programs” at public schools.
