Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb signed into law Senate Bill 391, which shifts tax revenues from school corporations to charter schools when property values increase over a certain threshold.

The legislation also requires school corporations to include charter schools in any referendum that would levy an additional tax.

State Senator Linda Rogers, who co-authored the legislation, stated that charter schools are public schools just like traditional public schools and should have proportional access to tax revenues. However, Democrats have criticized the legislation, stating that it will discourage voters from participating in a referendum and that it unfairly targets the state’s largest school districts.


  1. Now how about some tax relief for home school families!

    Looking at the general product of the government schools I see walking around town I know the property taxes I pay for them are generally wasted money.
