Senate Bill (SB)1783 is a direct attack on the Invest in Education Act. This bill creates a tax evasion scheme for large corporations to divert between $263 million and $378 million of #INVESTinED dollars away from public education and back into the hands of the wealthy. Voters approved INVESTinED because we believe in our students and educators and SB1783 undermines the will of the voters by divesting these education funds.
The Senate passed SB1783 along party lines with Republicans voting for and Democrats against. The bill is now working its way through the House of Representatives.
