Tennessee Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris says that lawmakers will either have to approve Gov. Bill Haslam’s approach to a school voucher program or face the measure being withdrawn entirely.

The Collierville Republican told reporters Tuesday that he perceives a growing level of comfort with Haslam’s more measured approach to the bill that would supply a limited number of parents of children in the state’s worst schools with public money to pay for a private education.
