Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and 11 Senate colleagues submitted an amicus brief to the Supreme Court on Friday, encouraging the Court to protect religious educational institutions from discrimination in the form of disqualification from a state tuition assistance program.
In Carson v. Makin, the Court is considering whether Maine violated religious liberty rights by restricting the availability of student-aid programs for religious schools otherwise generally available to private, non-religious schools. Protect The 1st made a similar argument in our brief on this case.
“Students should not be punished for attending a school where faith is taught, and states should not be able to discriminate against citizens who choose to live and learn their faith in school,” Sen. Lee said.
