A bill that would replace free preschool for all 4-year olds with a voucher program has died in the House.

Sen. Dave Jacoby, D-Coralville, said that although House File 535 has died, it will be part of the final negotiation with the governor later this month.

“[House File 535] is one of the top-two priorities of Democrats,” he said.

Before dying, the bill was most recently passed on to the education subcommittee.
