A bid to expand state financial aid for preschool gets a hearing in the Senate tomorrow, with better prospects than it found a year ago.
Last year, the Senate sharply scaled back a House proposal for preschool vouchers for low-income students.
But this year, Senate President Pro Tem David Long has joined Minority Leader Tim Lanane in endorsing the idea.
Governor Mike Pence has also made it one of his priorities, calling it an "idea whose time has come."
Republican senator Pete Miller is sponsoring the bill in the Senate.
