Voucher plan may be stalled
Gov. Bill Lee's signature education savings account proposal could be pared back to just two counties when it goes back before the Senate next week. different than the House bill that advanced this week. Republicans conceded that the controversial measure which would provide money for parents to take their children out of public schools and allow them to spend the funds on private school or other education-related expenses could be headed to a conference committee. The most recently approved version of the Senate bill was limited to Tennessee's six lowest-performing school districts and the state-run Achievement School District. The House version of the education savings account bill has been amended four times in as many committees. The Senate version has been amended once, in the only committee where it has been considered. The current versions of the Senate and House legislation have several differences. This week, the House changed the bill to provide some type of funding to schools throughout the state, beyond the counties targeted in the proposal.
