MADISON, Wis. — Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin released the following statement today thanking the legislature for their unanimous vote to pass Assembly Bill 332, which will provide an exception to the statewide voucher program cap and allow children who would be otherwise forced out of the state’s school choice program to stay enrolled.

State Director Eric Bott had the following to say:

Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin applauds the unanimous support shown today for the children who want nothing more than to be able to stay in the schools that they and their parents have selected for their education. School choice ensures parents and students can pick the best schools for their needs and allows students, of every background, to obtain the tools they need to succeed. We thank Senator Stroebel and Representative Sanfelippo for their leadership in ensuring that Wisconsin puts students first.
