Educational Savings Accounts Themselves, Constitutional

Washington, D.C. – Today, The LIBRE Initiative Executive Director Daniel Garza released the following statement regarding the Nevada Supreme Court’s ruling on the state’s Education Savings Account program.

Daniel Garza, Executive Director of The LIBRE Initiative, released the following statement:

"We are pleased that the court ruled Educational Savings Accounts themselves as constitutional, while striking down only the funding mechanism included in the law – an area which the state legislature can address in order to ensure that families can take advantage of the ESA program. We encourage Governor Sandoval to work with the legislature and supporters of the program to address this as quickly as possible, so that thousands of Latino families – and many others across the state – can seize the opportunity to build a better future for Nevada children.”
