Reaction: Judge Temporarily Blocks Gov. From Signing School Tax Bill From
The bill to give parents a tax break for shifting their children from failing public schools to public schools remains stopped in its tracks for now.
Montgomery County Circuit Judge Charles Prices says the way the bill was passed breaks state law.
Price sided with the Alabama Education Association and has temporarily blocked Governor Robert Bentley from signing the bill into law.
Attorney James Anderson represents the AEA.
Judge Price says lawmakers changed the bill's original purpose, which he says violates the state constitution.
Supporters of the bill are outraged. They are appealing to the Alabama Supreme Court.
