Vouchers headed to voters

25

April

Former Gov. Jeb Bush and school vouchers advocates scored a major victory this morning, when the Taxation and Budget Reform Commission approved a ballot proposal that would enshrine voucher protections in the state Constitution, our sister blog the Buzz reports.

The plan addresses part of the constitution calling for a uniform system of free public schools and is part of a two-pronged effort to redeem Bush's Opportunity Scholarships. It had been defeated at an April 4 meeting by one vote but resurfaced through some procedural maneuvering that helped gain support for the property tax swap. See the full post here.
