From State Rep. Sue Ness:
“The other big issue we will be discussing is the Invest in Kids Act. It is set to expire at the end of this year.
“Some groups are calling it a scholarship program and saying that the General Assembly is ending it.
“That is not true.
“The scholarship programs will continue, and individuals can continue to donate money to private schools to give scholarships based on income eligibility.
“The only thing we are changing is the 75% tax credit that is currently given.
“The bill that is expiring is for the tax credit, not the scholarship.
“This bill was something that happened before my time in the General Assembly.”
Not before her time, however, is the $25,000 in campaign contributions from the Illlinois Education Association PAC IPACE.
