Walker comfortable with slow expansion of vouchers

Jun. 11, 2013
 

MILWAUKEE — Gov. Scott Walker says he’s comfortable with the slow expansion of the school voucher program, and he also isn’t saying whether he’d use a line-item veto to eliminate a proposed enrollment cap.

Walker spoke Tuesday to members of School Choice Wisconsin, a pro-voucher group.

Walker’s initial budget proposal would have expanded vouchers to nine districts, with no enrollment limit after the second year. But he reached a compromise with Republican lawmakers that would expand the program statewide and impose enrollment limits everywhere except in Milwaukee and Racine.

Walker says he’s OK with the slower pace. He says it provides an opportunity to show on a small scale how well the program works, and it can be expanded from there.

He also says he doesn’t comment on line-item veto plans.
