School vouchers bill hits snag in Senate
Education secretary surprises Senate Republicans by saying Corbett is on fence about Sen. Piccola's legislation.
When state lawmakers rolled into town Monday, it was widely expected the Senate would sign off on a school vouchers bill and send it to the House, putting the bill into position for final approval by late June.
Four days later — and after an unusual intercession from Gov.Tom Corbett — Republicans who control the state Senate say they're looking for a clear sign his administration supports the bill now before the chamber. GOP leaders also are looking to assuage concerns from rank-and-file senators skittish over the cost and scope of the legislation.
