Arizona Gov. Brewer signs bill easing scholarship rules

PHOENIX — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill that would remove a
key requirement for students who want to participate in the state’s scholarship
tuition organization program.

School tuition organizations accept donations from individuals who get tax
credits. They then assign the money to private school students to help pay for
tuition.

House Bill 2328 would allow students to be eligible for the program without
having first attended a public or charter school for at least 90 days during the
prior school year.

Brewer vetoed a bill this year that would have allowed owners of corporations
to claim individual income tax credits for corporate donations to a school
tuition organization.

She signed HB2328 on Monday.
