Florida Supreme Court Denies Review In Tax Credit Scholarship Challenge

Yesterday in McCall v. Scott, (FL Sup. Ct., Jan. 18, 2017) the Florida Supreme Court declined to hear in appeal in a case challenging the constitutionality of Florida's Tax Credit Scholarship Program.  In August, a state appeals court held that a group of plaintiffs-- advocacy organizations, teachers, parents and religious and community leaders-- lack standing to pursue the case. (See prior posting.) Tampa Bay Times reports on the state Supreme Court's action.
