“If Amendment 8 passes, that does not turn the valve on for school vouchers,” said Jim Frankowiak, campaign manager for Say Yes on 8 run by Citizens for Religious Freedom and Non-Discrimination.
Rassbach of the Becket Fund, agreed, calling the voucher fear “silly.”
Becket Fund attorneys have argued Blaine Amendments are an impediment to school vouchers in those states that have them. But he said the group’s focus is on removing a sentence rooted in religious prejudice.
