The Legislature has another bill that would appear to expand the state’s Empowerment Scholarship Account program to a small group of students living near the Arizona-Utah border. 

Rep. Regina Cobb, R-Kingman, introduced HB 2898, which would expand ESA vouchers to non-public schools within two miles of the state border for students who live on reservations or who reside in a town with fewer than 10,000 residents in a county with a population between 150,000 and 500,000, if the town straddles the border between Arizona and a neighboring state.

Like the similar expansion effort in the Senate from Sen. Sylvia Allen, R-Snowflake, who’s sponsoring an effort for students on the Navajo Nation, Cobb’s bill also targets a specific group of people.
