WV private school savings account bill sent to committee

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A West Virginia bill to allow publicly funded savings accounts for students to attend private schools has been sent to a committee a day after passing the full House.

The bill was sent to the House finance committee on Friday.

Democrat Larry Rowe of Kanawha County was among Democrats objecting to the bill Thursday because its fiscal aspects had not been spelled out.

About $77 million was added to the bill's cost this week when it was changed to allow private and home-schooled students to be eligible for the program in 2026.
