On February 16, 2011, the PA Senate Education Committee is scheduled to hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 1, which would provide taxpayer-funded tuition vouchers for parents to send their children to private or religious schools.


According to the PA Department of State’s Campaign Finance Reporting website, during 2010 the Students First PAC, a voucher advocacy PAC, contributed $5,956,913.07 to Pennsylvania candidates, including 6 members of the Senate Education Committee.
I have noted the amounts contributed to each of the cosponsors of SB 1 listed below.

Senate Bill 1 is now posted on the General Assembly’s website:
