      The Florida House has voted to expand eligibility for vouchers that let disabled students attend private schools at taxpayer expense.
      The bill (HB 1505) that passed unanimously Wednesday would permit a student previously enrolled in a public school in any year to get a McKay scholarship.
      Currently a student must have attended a public school in the prior school year.
      It also would extend eligibility to kindergartners who haven't previously attended a public school.
      Another provision would let the state education commissioner revoke a private school's participation for health, safety and public welfare reasons.
      The measure now goes to the Senate where similar bill (SB 2746) is ready for a floor vote.
