This article reports that Missouri lawmakers fended off a bill that would have provided tax credits for donations to organizations that give scholarships for private school tuition and another to mandate the teaching of intelligent design. The GOP-dominated legislature also failed to embrace a plan from Gov. Matt Blunt to put a measure on the November 2006 ballot that would require schools to spend 65 percent of their funding on classroom instruction.
