Florida bill would give tax incentives to companies that pay for low-income students to attend private school

The Florida Senate has approved giving $50 million in tax credits to companies that help send low-income children to private schools. The plan, which is similar to a bill that has passed the House, could shift thousands of students from public to private schools. Despite heavy opposition from Democrats, Republican supporters say it will give educational choices to parents of low-income children.
