Public hearing on SB 193, the statewide voucher bill, on Friday, March 9 at 1 p.m.

The House Finance Committee will hold a public hearing on SB 193 on Friday, March 9 at 1 p.m. in LOB 210-211. 

The Division II subcommittee released an amendment on February 28. The amended version removes the stabilization grants that would have protected districts from some of the financial impacts of the vouchers, changes the eligibility requirements, places enrollment caps on the number of students who can receive a voucher, and makes changes to the way schools, parents, and students are held accountable for the state-funded savings account.
