Ind. Decisions - Supreme Court uphold school voucher program

In a 5-0 opinion just issued, the Indiana Supreme Court has ruled:

WE HOLD THAT THE INDIANA SCHOOL VOUCHER PROGRAM, THE
CHOICE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM, IS WITHIN THE LEGISLATURE'S
POWER UNDER ARTICLE 8, SECTION 1, AND THAT THE ENACTED
PROGRAM DOES NOT VIOLATE EITHER SECTION 4 OR SECTION 6
OF ARTICLE 1 OF THE INDIANA CONSTITUTION. WE AFFIRM
THE GRANT OF SUMMARY JUDGMENT TO THE DEFENDANTS.
