Republican Rep. Robert Behning of Indianapolis says he was always confident that the voucher program would be found constitutional but that he was excited by the court's unanimous ruling released Tuesday.
The Republican-dominated Legislature is now considering a bill expanding the voucher program to make some low-income children immediately eligible without first attending public school.
New Democratic state schools superintendent Glenda Ritz opposes the voucher program. Ritz aide John Barnes says he was surprised by the unanimous ruling and that the agency will have to review the decision to see whether limits can be placed on the program.
