There even are some new disclosure requirements for the controversial universal school voucher program, meant to appease Democratic lawmakers who object to the program and its cost. But they will do little to address an underlying concern that the rapidly growing program will break the state budget in coming years.
Here are some of the key items in the budget plan and who will benefit most from it:
