Tuition tax credit program under ACLU attack

WASHINGTON — Alliance Defense Fund attorneys appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court Thursday, asking it to reverse a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit that declared portions of a tuition tax credit program for students unconstitutional.  ADF attorneys argue that the program–which allows state residents to claim a tax credit for donations to private organizations that provide scholarships to private schools–is constitutional because the program involves individual, private choices and funding, not government action or money.

Case Name:  Winn v. Garriott
