On behalf of our organizations, we urge you to support an amendment (#1725) filed by Senators Ted Cruz, Tom Cotton, and Ben Sasse to expand school choice for millions of American children. The amendment broadens 529 education savings accounts so that they can be used in K-12 education. Echoing policy in the House tax reform bill, this amendment expands the definition of qualified 529 expenses to include K-12 tuition, as well as home schooling expenses, up to $10,000 per year per child. Education savings should be able to be used for both college as well as pre-college education. Parents deserve to have all the tools at their disposal to choose the education they want for their children.
