Governor proposes increase for special needs vouchers

JACKSON – The Mississippi Legislature, dealing with sluggish revenue collections and two years of budget cuts, is being asked by Gov. Phil Bryant to triple the amount of money for a program that provides vouchers or scholarships for special needs children to pursue private education options.

Bryant’s budget plan for the upcoming fiscal year proposes increasing the appropriation for the Education Scholarship Accounts from $3 million for the current fiscal year to $13 million for the upcoming fiscal year, which begins July 1.
