voucher ruling throws budget into disarray

Now that the Supreme Court has ruled that Gov. Jindal's voucher scheme can't be funded by public education's Minimum Foundation Program, where will the money come from to make this year's final payment to the private and religious schools that have accepted some 5,00 students across the state? And what will happen to the program next year?

Neither the Department of Education nor Gov. Bobby Jindal have provided answers. WBRZ-TV reporter Rob Krieger tried to get some information in this report.
