“This is an issue we must address,” state Sen. Jim Tracy, R-Shelbyville, said. “I don’t know whether we can simply amend the bill in such a way that will fix the issue at this point.”
“This issue gives me pause in voting for the governor’s voucher proposal,” Sen. Bill Ketron, R-Murfreesboro, agreed. “These issues warrant further assessment. What’s the rush? Do we need to send these proposals to summer study (committee)?”
The voucher bill is on the agenda in House and Senate committees again this week.
