Landrieu: La. Judge's Ruling on Expanded Voucher Program 'No Surprise'

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., released the following statement after State District Judge Tim Kelley today ruled Gov. Bobby Jindal's expanded voucher program unconstitutional:

"It is no surprise that State District Judge Tim Kelley today ruled the unnecessarily aggressive and overreaching statewide voucher program unconstitutional. A strategic use of state-funded vouchers could be appropriate, but this diversion of public education dollars was a step too far and diminishes resources for meaningful reform efforts already underway at the local level. Judge Kelley was correct in setting appropriate limits."
