Committee to vote on expanding Wisconsin voucher program

MADISON - The Legislature's budget-writing committee plans to vote for expanding the state's private-school voucher program.

Gov. Scott Walker has proposed doing away with the 1,000-student enrollment cap for the statewide program that began two years ago. But in doing that, Walker's plan would lower the amount of the taxpayer-funded voucher that students receive for their private-school education.

Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos has proposed a different funding approach that would keep the vouchers at the same level. The money would come out of aid from the public school district that is losing the student to a private school.
