School Choice Day at the Capitol with Del. Chris Saxman

Monday, January 26, is "School Choice Day" as Delegate Chris Saxman invites public, private, and home school groups to meet at the Capitol to support school choice.

HB1965 (Saxman, R-Staunton) allows tax credits for businesses or individuals who contribute to non-profit education foundations. Scholarship foundations may distribute funds to qualified public, private, or homeschooled students.

HB 1965 will be heard in the full Finance Committee on Monday morning, January 26. Finance meets Monday at 8:30 a.m. in House Room D; however, we anticipate the bill will be heard later on the docket to give parents more time to arrive at the hearing.
