HB 1027 - Prekindergarten Grant Pilot

Synopsis: Prekindergarten grant pilot program. Provides that the prekindergarten grant pilot program expires in 2016, rather than 2014. Establishes the prekindergarten grant pilot program fund. Provides that the $0.65 portion of the riverboat admissions tax that is currently paid to the state general fund shall instead be paid to the prekindergarten grant pilot program fund. Makes appropriations from the prekindergarten grant pilot program fund for the prekindergarten pilot program.

STRONGLY OPPOSE: You'll love this bill if you favor taxpayer subsidized daycare. Rep. Day remains true to his socialist tendencies with this bill. The unfortunate reality is this could gain real legs without strong immediate vocal opposition. From Governor Daniels through the GOP to the very socialist Democratic wing led by Day, the trend in education is to take over all parental responsibility at the earliest ages possible. Get on the phone about this one!

Status: Authored by Rep. Day; referred to Committee on Ways and Means.
