The Supreme Court of the United States agreed on Wednesday to hear what may end up being a landmark religious liberty case out of Montana involving the use of state funds to attend Christian schools.
The dispute involves a state program in which parents receive tax-credit funds with which they can send their children to schools of their choosing, including private religious schools. Opponents say the program violated the Montana constitution's separation of church and state.
The Montana Supreme Court has previously ruled that the entire program violated the state's constitution. The program has been allowed to continue during the appeal to the Supreme Court. A decision is expected by the end of June.
