I am trying to understand what Rep. Steve Fitzpatrick and other legislators (Mark Blasdel, Liz Bangerter, Steve Gibson and Kirk Wagoner) who voted for school vouchers for private schools did not comprehend or chose not to comprehend from the following excerpt of Montana’s Constitution. That excerpt reads as follows: “Article X: Education and Public Lands: Section 6. Aid prohibited to sectarian schools. (1) The legislature, counties, cities, towns, school districts, and public corporations shall not make any direct or indirect appropriation or payment from any public fund or monies, or any grant of lands or other property for any sectarian purpose or to aid any church, school, academy, seminary, college, university, or other literary or scientific institution, controlled in whole or in part by any church, sect, or denomination.”
One doesn’t have to be a genius to comprehend clear and simple English, but it appears that several legislators do not.
