MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Republican Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says expanding the private school voucher program probably can’t be done as Gov. Scott Walker has proposed.

Vos commented on the issue Wednesday after a new revenue forecast predicted no growth in the next two years above previous projections.

Walker proposed lifting the 1,000-student enrollment cap in the statewide voucher program, with funding for the expansion coming from public school districts that lose students. However, his approach has run into opposition from voucher advocates who worry it will lead to lower vouchers for participating students.

Vos says Republicans want to ensure that those already receiving vouchers don’t see a reduction. He says they have not yet talked about expansion.
