Professor Brownstein Comments on Tax Law for Arizona Republic

Professor Alan Brownstein commented for the Arizona Republic on the pending U.S. Supreme Court review of an Arizona program that diverts state tax revenue into private-school scholarships.  Professor Brownstein said that the current Court seems "very favorable" toward indirect aid programs, especially given that retired Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor was the swing vote in church-state cases in years past and her replacement, Samuel Alito, seems more inclined to support government aid for religious organizations

Professor Brownstein, a nationally recognized Constitutional Law scholar, teaches Constitutional Law, Law and Religion, and Torts at UC Davis School of Law, where he holds the Boochever and Bird Endowed Chair for the Study and Teaching of Freedom and Equality.
