This explains House Bill 388 which passed the House Education Committee and is eligible for passage in the Short Session which begins in May.
If you agree you can help by sharing it with your friends you think would be interested and any representatives or senators you know. Please share this link with parents of school age children whose special needs are moderate or severe. Perhaps a civic group or local newspaper would be interested.
Using the middle range of estimates provided by fiscal research, this bill will allow parents of approximately 3,000 children, who have such needs due to their disability, to receive about $18 million in tax credits in a way which actually save state and local government about $4 million per year.
This is a win-win for children and parents.
Rep. Paul Stam
House Republican Leader
