Out of time: Branstad doesn't think preschool plan will pass

Posted:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Governor Terry Branstad doesn't think there is enough time left to push forward his restructuring plan of the state's preschool program.

The Governor has spent most of the legislature working with Democrats and Republicans to balance the budget. The proposal passed the house.

It would replace a free, statewide preschool program for 4-year-olds with need based scholarships aid.

Parents with higher incomes would pay a bigger share of the costs.
