In the summer of 2016, the Nevada Supreme Court ruled on the constitutionality of Education Savings Accounts. The court found that ESAs, in themselves, are entirely within the law — however the way in which lawmakers had planned on funding the program was unacceptable, according to the court.
As a result, the program remains in place, and the Treasurer’s office continues to process applications. However, the program remains unfunded. What this means for families that would like to apply — or have already applied — is that ESAs will only become a reality in Nevada if lawmakers take action, and fully fund this promising reform in 2017.
