Mississippi senators have agreed to let a small percentage of special education students use public money to go to private schools.
Up to 500 special education students could receive a voucher the first year, and the program would increase by 500 a year until it reaches 2,500 students.
"Special needs students deserve the opportunity to succeed, and this bill gives parents the power to provide additional resources to help their children obtain the education and support they need," Bryant said in a news release.
Bryan argued that legislators should try to improve special education services for all students who need them rather than for a small number who could receive vouchers.

The conflict arises as thousands of college basketball fans prepare to converge on the city for the conclusion of the NCAA Tournament, an economic behemoth in college sports.
While it has a close relationship with Indiana's capital city, college sports have been at the forefront of several breakthroughs for gay rights in the last two years, and the young adults and college students the NCAA represents have generally been supportive of those changes.
Last year, former University of Missouri football player Michael Sam came out as gay as he prepared for the NFL draft.
Former professional basketball player Jason Collins, the first openly gay athlete to play in the NBA, tweeted: "@GovPenceIN, is it going to be legal for someone to discriminate against me & others when we come to the #FinalFour?"
