In Georgia, one voucher measure is tabled, another is voted up

There’s been some mixed results this week with Georgia legislation that would enhance the state’s private learning options. The Georgia Senate yesterday tabled SB 87, which would have expanded Georgia’s special needs scholarship to children of military families and to children in foster care. Yet the House, on the same day, passed HB 325 by a 110-56 margin. That bill enriches the state’s tax credit scholarship. 

Additionally, another special-needs scholarship measure, HB 62, which relaxes some requirements for students on a case-by-case basis, passed the House by a 115-33 margin earlier this week.
