Fox News chief legal correspondent Shannon Bream breaks down the ruling on ‘America’s Newsroom.’

DEVELOPING … 

The Supreme Court on Tuesday struck down a ban on taxpayer funding for religious schools, in a narrow but significant win for the school choice movement.

In the 5-4 ruling, authored by Chief Justice John Roberts, the court essentially backed a Montana tax-credit scholarship program that gave residents up to a $150 credit for donating to private scholarship organizations, helping students pay for their choice of private schools. The state’s revenue department made a rule banning those tax-credit scholarships from going to religious schools before the state’s supreme court later struck down the entire program.

Tuesday’s ruling is a victory for school choice proponents and some conservative religious groups who had challenged the provision in court.
