OKLAHOMA CITY – Sen. Jason Smalley announced Monday that he will be supporting amended legislation to raise the cap on the Equal Opportunity Education Program when it comes back to the Senate. The Stroud Republican voted against the measure when it came through the Senate in light of his opposition to school vouchers but said the amended bill will help Oklahoma’s schools and students.

“Given the amendments, this truly is a scholarship program that helps low-income and special needs students get an education that better meets their needs,” said Smalley. “This bill will help encourage more investment in our schools and students through charitable giving.”
