Nearly two dozen Republican lawmakers on Wednesday called for state funding for a private school scholarship program to remain, proposing to use new budgetary authority to keep the program if the money was not restored. The Broadening Options and Opportunities for Students Today, or BOOST program, provided more than 3,000 Maryland students scholarships to attend nonpublic schools last year. The funding for the program has been cut by $2 million in Democratic Gov. Wes Moore proposed budget.
