Frankfort, Ky. (March 17, 2021) —  EdChoice KY President Charles Leis released the following statement on the passing of House Bill 563: 

“On behalf of every Kentucky student who needs options in education, and every Kentucky parent who wants the best opportunities for their children: we are incredibly grateful to every member of the Kentucky House and the Kentucky Senate who voted “yes” on passing House Bill 563 into law. We’d also like to offer our sincere thanks to Rep. Chad McCoy for sponsoring this bill and House and Senate leadership for prioritizing the passage of HB 563 during the 2021 session. 
After years of advocating for common sense school choice programs, Kentucky families will soon have more education options than ever before, and we are excited to see what the future of educational opportunity will look like in the Commonwealth."
