Alabama Judge Delays Enforcing Ruling On Outlawing Tax Credits For Private Schools

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- An Alabama judge will delay enforcing his decision outlawing tax credits for private school students in Alabama.

Montgomery County Circuit Judge Gene Reese issued a hand-written order Monday agreeing to delay implementation of his ruling against the Republican-based Alabama Accountability Act.

The judge agreed with the state to block his order, meaning the tax credit program can go ahead while appeals courts consider the issue.

The law allows state tax credits for parents who move their children from failing public schools to private schools.

The Alabama Education Association contends legislators passed the law illegally.

The state argues that stopping the program while the future of the law is in court would harm parents and result in some students being sent back to failing schools.
