Education Savings Accounts proposal H.R. 5199 opposed by House Committee

The National School Boards Association applauds the U.S. House of Representatives leadership and Rules Committee’s decision to oppose H.R. 5199, the Education Savings Accounts for Military Families Act, from being voted upon as part of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (NDAA), currently being considered on the House Floor. This decision reflects a spirit of bipartisanship and recognition of the importance of the Impact Aid program, which provides federal funding to our nation’s more than 1,100 school districts that have lost property tax revenue due to the presence of tax-exempt federal property or that educate federally connected children.
