Governor Signs Law That Expands Voucher Program

A bill that expands the state's school voucher program is now law.

Governor Pence signed the bill yesterday in a ceremony at Calvary Christian Academy.

Siblings of students who receive vouchers and students who live in a district with a failing public school can now get a voucher without first going to a public school. 

The bill also increases the income threshold for voucher families.

Opponents of a school voucher expansion worry it will drain more money from Indiana public schools.
