School voucher plan needs House approval

Posted: Updated:

INDIANAPOLIS (WAVE) - The chairman of the Indiana Senate Education committee said any proposals to expand the state's private school voucher system will have to be approved first by the House.

Wednesday, the committee was set to vote on a bill that would make it easier for siblings of those already in the program to also receive vouchers.

The vote was delayed because the committee is waiting to see if the House will approve a broader bill that would completely end the one year waiting period included in the 2012 bill.
