A bill that could increase the number of scholarships the Georgia Department of Education awards to special needs students is on its way to the House for review.
Senate Bill 386 would expand the eligibility requirements for the Georgia Special Needs Scholarship.
The Georgia Senate voted 33-22 on Tuesday in favor of the bill.
“We are excited that the Georgia Senate passed SB 386 and has opened the door of opportunity for students with special needs in our state to get the education they need,” Georgia Center for Opportunity Vice President of Public Policy Buzz Brockway said. “We are hopeful the state House will follow suit and pass this as well.”
