NASHVILLE - Gov. Bill Haslam's school-voucher task force today submitted its final written recommendations to the Republican governor on how a program could be implemented in Tennessee.

The report comes a year after Haslam appointed the nine-member group to study how Tennessee might students use state and local tax dollars to attend private and religious schools.

Task Force members finalized their recommendations in a public meeting earlier this month, saying the state should limit any would-be program to poorer students. But the group failed to reach consensus on several key details including how large a program Tennessee should have.
