In a historic vote, the House Finance Subcommittee passed the Tennessee Choice & Opportunity Scholarship Act today. Having already passed the full Senate last session, the bill will now move on to a vote of the full House Finance Committee.

Beacon CEO Justin Owen stated, “This is a big step in the right direction for this school choice bill that has the potential to help so many Tennessee families. We are excited by the progress of this bill and by the possibility that we will finally give low-income Tennessee children a real opportunity to succeed.”
