Summary of the Introduced Bill

HJR 70 -- Funding for Religious Educational Purposes

Sponsor:  Schoeller

Upon voter approval, this proposed constitutional amendment
eliminates the current prohibition on the use of public funds,
through appropriation or through a grant of personal or real
property, for the benefit of any religious or sectarian
educational purpose.  The resolution prohibits the denial of the
general state benefits of any education program, funding, or
other support on the basis of religious identity or belief as
long as the benefits comply with the requirements of the First
Amendment to the United States Constitution.
