PHOENIX – Supporters of parochial schools applauded the 5-4 ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court that the free exercise of religion bars the government from treating religious groups differently from secular ones. The Court overturned a 2018 Montana Supreme Court decision that required the state to exclude religious school options for parents participating in a state tax credit scholarship program.

A coalition of attorneys general lead by Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, argued in a brief that if the ruling was not reversed, it would open the doors for other state courts to interpret laws regarding similar scholarship programs in the same discriminatory way.
