GA Wonk Editorial Board Press Release: On Gaddy v. Georgia Dept. of Revenue

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

THE GEORGIA WONK EDITORIAL BOARD ISSUES THE FOLLOWING STATEMENT

The Supreme Court of Georgia today announced their ruling in the case of Gaddy et al v. the Georgia Department of Revenue, et al, reversing a previous court’s decision that HB 1133 was unconstitutional. HB 1133 is a statute that allows parents who donate money to certain scholarship organizations to receive a non-refundable tax credit in the amount of $1,000 (or $2,500 for couples filing jointly). This bill was intended to support the school choice movement in Georgia, but it was challenged in court on the basis that it violated the State’s constitution.

The Georgia Wonk disagrees with the Supreme Court’s decision, but we acknowledge that their ruling is based on valid law and existing precedent. While the Editorial Board of the Georgia Wonk maintains that the school choice movement is damaging to the health of public education, we accept the Supreme Court’s ruling as just.

Our Chief Correspondent, Mr. Hardy, is preparing a report for distribution tomorrow.

We have no further comment at this time.
