The information for this post was taken from an extremely handy website administrated by Lieutenant Governor Gary Herbert's office. This website includes links to:
- Arguments for/against Citizen's State Referendum 1 (here)
- Impartial Analysis - prepared by the Office of Legislative Research and General Counsel (here)
- Full text of House Bill 148 (here)
- The money to pay for the scholarships is taken directly from the General Fund.
- The credentials of teachers at the private schools must be disclosed (116).
- If a private school teacher doesn't have a college degree, they must "have special skills, knowledge, or expertise that qualifies them to provide instruction in the subjects taught (156)."
- The private school must enroll more than 40 students to be eligible to accept vouchers (184).
- "The Legislature shall actually appropriate money to the board for the General Fund to make scholarship payments for all students projected to apply for scholarships (203)."
- Once the money allocated by the Legislature has been used up for that year, then no more scholarships will be awarded. If more people apply than there is money for, then the scholarships will be given by random selection.
