(KSL News) A petition drive to repeal Utah's new school voucher law may have hit a snag.
Sources at the Utah Senate say there were actually two nearly identical bills that enact school vouchers this year (HB 148 and HB 174) and the petition drive only addresses one.
Bill 174 passed by a two-thirds majority in both the House and Senate, making it ineligible for a recall petition.
And, the bill 148 contains a multi-million dollar 'hold harmless' provision, meant to protect schools in case vouchers cost them money. Repealing that law would leave vouchers in place, but take away that money.
