Huffman announces legislation to encourage scholarships

COLUMBUS — On Monday, State Sen. Matt Huffman, R-Lima, was joined by U.S. Assistant Secretary of Elementary and Secondary Education Frank Brogan for a press conference announcing legislation to set up a system to offer tax credits to individuals who make donations to scholarship-granting organizations.

Senate Bill 199 would allow Ohio to take advantage of the proposed Education Freedom Scholarship Program announced earlier this year by the U.S. Department of Education. The proposed plan is currently being considered by Congress.
