Sen. Hunter Hill To Present “Individual Student Education Account Act” to Senate Education and Youth Committee

ATLANTA (February 24, 2017) | Sen. Hunter Hill (R – Smyrna) will present Senate Bill 68 to the Senate Education and Youth Committee today.

“SB 68 serves the purpose of opening up the opportunity for students, regardless of income level, to earn a robust, quality education,” Said Sen. Hill. “For too long, parents have been left with no choice as to what school their child could attend simply because of financial limitations. SB 68 opens up the door for real choice and would be a much needed change to our state’s education system.”

Senate Bill 68, also known as the “Individual Student Education Account Act” would establish an individual student education savings account meant to improve access to quality education by providing parents a financial mechanism to choose the school that is right for their child.
