Missouri’s GOP House Speaker would like to see his chamber focus on more school choice bills in the session’s second half. The issue is a top priority for Speaker Rob Vescovo.
The House approved legislation this month that allows donors to provide scholarships for students to attend a private Missouri K-12 school, in cities with a population of 30-thousand or greater. The scholarships could be used for things like tutoring and school supplies. Lawmakers will return to Jefferson City on Monday, following their spring break.
