In opening remarks, Brown discussed an education bill he sponsored — Senate Bill 334. Educators across Indiana have complained the bill will only expand the existing school choice voucher system now being funded by state tax dollars. Brown refuted the notion.
“The conflict on the bill is about the definition of what is an expansion,” Brown said. “I personally disagree that this is an expansion of the voucher system. It abides by our public policy that the money follows the student. The amount budgeted is not changing, so I do not see it as an expansion.”
