Florida would make every student eligible for vouchers to attend private school with taxpayer money under the proposed legislation.
House Speaker Paul Renner said will be a priority for the session that begins on March 7.
The bill could greatly expand the state’s current voucher programs but would give priority to low-income and special-needs students ahead of wealthier families seeking help with private school tuition.
Renner said he’s not concerned that the legislation could create a mass exodus from public schools.
House Democratic Leader Fentrice Driskell disagrees, calling the bill “alarming.”
