INDIANAPOLIS — A proposed expansion of Indiana's private school voucher program would be scaled back under the new state budget plan from state Senate Republicans, while still boosting the program's spending by about 25%.

The two-year state spending plan endorsed by a Senate committee Thursday faces more negotiations over the next two weeks, with the top House Republican intent on pushing for bigger voucher changes that could add several thousand more students to the program.
