College vouchers for Missouri?

Kansas City, MO – This year's session of the Missouri Legislature may have seen the beginnings of a major change in the way the state finances its colleges and universities. House-originated caps on higher education funding and tuition did not survive in the Senate, but the passage of a bill offering college vouchers to most state high school graduates with a C+ or above average did. And that could be a step toward more sweeping changes proposed by a St. Louis Representative. KCUR'S Steve Bell reports.
