Special Reports SERVICES Video E-mail Newsletters CNNtoGO SEARCH Web CNN.com Story Tools RELATED Key provisions in the special education bill HR 1350 WASHINGTON (AP) A Republican-led push to let parents send disabled children to private school with government money failed Wednesday as the House passed legislation renewing a 28-year-old law governing special education. Democrats said the school choice proposals amounted to a dangerous expansion of the voucher program. The proposals were a major point of contention in the debate over reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. The bill passed by a 251-171 vote. One plan would have enticed states to create private school options so parents could use public money for tuition and transportation. A second proposal was intended to give certificates of public dollars about $1,400 to disabled children already enrolled in private schools so they could get extra services. Supporters said that amounts to the per-student federal dollars that school districts receive for special education. Almost every Democrat and about one-fifth of Republicans joined to reject the ideas.

VOR Letters Letter in Support of Lincoln Developmental Center Dear Governor Blagojevich, We are writing to thank and commend you for the leadership you have exhibited regarding the Lincoln Developmental Center (LDC) situation. As advocates for choice, we applaud your decision to re-open LDC and praise you for your efforts to bring together advocates, families, providers, employees and consumers for the benefit of all Illinoisans with mental retardation and developmental disabilities. You have made it very clear that LDC, upon re-opening, will be a state-of-the-art facility. Many families of former LDC residents are grateful that a new and improved LDC will again be an option for their loved ones. Many people with severe and profound mental retardation who also have complex medical conditions and/or behavioral challenges require and choose the specialized care available in Illinois facilities. Adding LDC back to the mix of choices is the right thing to do. Your decision to re-open LDC fits squarely with the letter and spirit of Olmstead . In this landmark decision, the Supreme Court recognized an ongoing role for facilities equipped to safely and professionally serve some people with disabilities:
