Statement from Senator Brian Kelsey regarding the House Finance Subcommittee’s approval of the “Tennessee Choice and Opportunity Scholarship Act”

NASHVILLE — Today, the House Finance, Ways and Means Subcommittee amended and voted to approve the Tennessee Choice and Opportunity Scholarship Act.  Following that action, Senator Brian Kelsey (R-Germantown) made this statement:

“I am very pleased that this key House subcommittee has approved this legislation,” said Senator Kelsey, who has been a vocal proponent of opportunity scholarships.  “This bill will help thousands of low income children to receive the quality education they deserve.  Between the two amendments offered today, I would have preferred the one that was not adopted; however, passing the bill as amended today is a big step in the right direction.”
