The Iowa House voted 55-45 Tuesday to approve legislation to create an preschool scholarship program for 4-year-olds.

The bill, proposed by the House Committee on Education, makes recommendations for improving childcare collaboration between educational departments including Head Start and the statewide preschool program.

In January, House Republicans proposed a budget that included eliminating universal preschool. This bill was considered a compromise.

The bill now moves to the state Senate.
