A bill that would create a pilot program to offer low-income families assistance in affording preschool clears the Indiana House. It would start in five Indiana counties. Eligible parents of 4-year-olds would receive up to $6,800 for a full-day program and $3,400 for a half-day program. Family and Social Services would supervise it. But, leaders in the Senate say they have to consider the cost of the program, which would not be funded until next year.
