SACRAMENTO, Calif. - A California Senate bill could reimburse parents for the expenses it took to put their child in virtual learning during the pandemic.

The bill is called "SB 610," which was proposed by State Senator Shannon Grove (R-Bakersfield).

It says parents could see half of such expenses returned in a tax credit of nearly $2,300, per child.

The bill is on its way to the Senate Appropriations Committee after unanimously passing the finance committee.

If passed, tutoring expenses, books, supplies, technology, software, and the internet would qualify for the credit.

This reimbursement would only apply to parents whose child was in K-12 during the pandemic.
