HomeBreaking NewsTHE DAILY GRIND – SEPTEMBER 9TH, 2016: VETERANS’ BOYCOTT OF CHANNEL 13 TARGETS SPONSORS Breaking News, Local, Politics, TV September 9, 2016 ESA FORUM EXPRESSED ANXIETY OVER PENDING SUPREME COURT RULINGS NPRI and the International Christian Academy hosted an SB 302 Education Saving Account informational forum on Thursday. Karen Gray of NPRI lead the event and answered a host of questions from parent. There is high anxiety regarding the pending Nevada State Supreme Court Decisions. Two cases were filed last year challenging the constitutionality of the law. The ESA law allows parents whose child has been in a public school for more than 100 days to file an application for funding of up to $5,700 to apply towards private school tuition. And that’s the cause of the lawsuits. First the ACLU filed a lawsuit claiming the using of public dollars for religious schools is unconstitutional. The second lawsuit claims applying any funds already earmarked for public schools is unconstitutional. Either case has the potential to scrap the law in its current form. However, Assemblywoman Victoria Seaman said the Legislature would seek to fix the law if the court ruled against it. Seaman is currently a candidate for State Senate leading by 12 points according to recent polls. Seaman, who leading the ESA effort declared to the audience “I am fighting for school choice because its no longer acceptable for kids in Nevada to be stuck in a school system that’s second to last in the country.” Assembly Candidate Jim Marchant and Assemblyman Richard McArthur were also on hand at the event.

According to sources, the veterans’ group is contacting the sponsors and asking them to show their support for veterans. The veterans’ boycott started when liberal political reporter Jon Ralston publicly called a local veteran a loser when he asked Vice Presidential Candidate Mike Pence a question at a rally and Channel 13 defended the unprofessional behavior.
