Indiana lawmakers are scaling back a plan to expand the state’s school voucher program.

According to our partners at the Indianapolis Business Report, the House Ways and Means committee removed a provision that would have waived the requirement for current private school students to spend at least one year in public schools before seeking a voucher.

If approved, the provision could have opened Indiana’s private school voucher system to thousands of more students.

Lawmakers decided the provision would simply cost too much.
