Lawmakers are looking to send your tax dollars to religious institutions! Bill SB 305 would expand an existing voucher program that siphons funds for public schools into private institutions. The bill is stalled for now, but other state lawmakers are still pushing to expand the voucher program. Contact your Indiana state officials today and tell them not to support this bill, or anything like it!
SB 305 would expand the eligibility of voucher programs to include all student residents of Indiana. In order to do this, valuable taxpayer dollars normally used for public education will be diverted to fund private religious schools. Lawmakers are operating under the guise of offering “school choice” to students, despite studies showing that these programs have no benefit for public school students, especially considering many voucher recipients normally do not attend public schools in the first place. This waste of Indiana tax dollars to fund religious indoctrination has to be stopped!
Other states have rushed voucher expansion through the legislature quickly in order to avoid public scrutiny, so please contact your state officials and urge them to oppose these efforts! We have included suggested language through the “Take Action” button, which you may customize as you see fit. For best results, please be succinct and polite.
