On Saturday, Chairman Ken King, author of HB 100, announced that the bill would not be passed. When HB 100 returned to the House from the Senate it had a universal ESA/voucher program attached to it. “In a good faith effort, the House continued to negotiate with the Senate,” wrote King in his statement, “but in the end the Senate would not negotiate at all. It was a universal ESA or nothing. I am truly sorry HB 100 did not pass, but in the end I believe students, teachers, and schools are better off with current law than they would be if we accept what the Senate is offering.”
