A Proposal For School Vouchers Gets Smaller

Republican state lawmakers have scaled back a proposed expansion of Indiana's private school voucher system.

Changes approved by the House Ways and Means Committee would allow kindergartners and some other students to be immediately eligible for the program if their families meet income limits.

But the committee removed a provision that would have opened the voucher program to current private school students by not requiring them to first spend at least one year in public schools.

The bill now goes to the full Republican-controlled House for consideration.
