The Supreme Court heard oral argument in a case that could affect the way public funds are used for students attending religious schools. It stems from a Montana Supreme Court decision that blocked tax credits for donations to religious scholarship organizations. In 2015, the Montana legislature provided tax credits to people who donated to a scholarship program. The Montana Department of Revenue issued a rule barring the use of the scholarships at religiously affiliated schools, based on a provision in the Montana Constitution that prohibits the use of public funds for religious institutions. Three parents with children attending a non-denominational Christian schools filed suit, arguing that the ruling violates the Free Exercise Clause that prohibits discrimination against religion. close
