Religious institutions are coming for your tax dollars! The upcoming Florida bill SB 202 is threatening to expand an existing voucher program to siphon even more money to private schools. Please urge the Florida Senate Committee on Education to reject this bill!
This high priority bill would expand a currently existing voucher program from less than $1.5 billion a year to $4 billion. The dramatic jump is justified to “accommodate any student resident of Florida.” Lawmakers hide the intention of promoting private Christian schools under the guise of student choice, despite studies showing that there is no benefit of these programs for public school students, especially since most voucher recipients never attended public schools in the first place. This is a waste of Florida tax dollars to pay for religious indoctrination, and it needs to be stopped!
SB 202 will be heard very soon, so please contact the Senate committee today! 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.
