Legislative leaders say they will fight for vouchers

House Speaker Thom Tillis and Senate leader Phil Berger say they will ask the state Supreme Court to remove a freeze on the state voucher program so parents can use the $10 million the legislature set aside for private school tuition this fall. A Superior Court judge froze the program in February while lawsuits seeking to stop the plan proceed. The NC Appeals Court denied an appeal from parents to lift the injunction.
