President Clinton vetoed an education bill that included provisions to enable families to maintain tax-free savings accounts for private, parochial and higher education. Officials at the Orthodox Union’s Institute for Public Affairs said they are “deeply disappointed” by the president’s decision. Other Jewish groups praised Clinton and criticized the legislation as a backdoor attempt to use taxpayer dollars to fund parochial schools.
