Jim Wooten has an opinion piece in today’s AJC discussing the idea of changing Georgia’s constitution to allow state funds to go to religious entities. Senator Stoner says he has a bill that would allow the money to go to those religious organizations while closing the door on vouchers. He says the Dems will go for it.
No Democrats supported that change in the Senate, and it therefore failed to gain the two-thirds approval required for submission to voters. Stoner predicts that a version he’s offering, which would also prohibit school vouchers, would attract 16 Democrats.
Is it worth closing the door on vouchers to get a bill of this kind through the process? Jim Wooten says no.
Do you agree?
