Return to Index: Current Issues    

On December 20, the House of Representatives included H.R.6674 Student Empowerment Act as an amendment to H.R.88 Shiloh National Military Park Boundary Adjustment and Parker’s Crossroads Battlefield Designation Act (also referred to as the Retirement, Savings, and Other Tax Relief Act of 2018). The Senate previously passed H.R.88, and the bill is now at a status of “Resolving Differences.” The Student Empowerment Act expands the use of Section 529 funds to qualified homeschool expenses.

Since the activity for this bill was conducted during the 115th Congress, Congressional leadership must decide whether to take this bill up in the 116th Congress, which began on January 3.

WPA’s Legislative Watch is monitoring this legislation, and will let you know if it is taken up in the 116th Congress, and if so, what action should be taken.
