Chrysler talks merging with GM, IN has largest voucher program in U.S.


INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – There is more talk from Chrysler about possibly merging with another big automaker, and there are new numbers on how many families use school vouchers in Indiana.

John Elkann, Chairman for Chrysler, said the company believes it could save $10 billion annually in a merger with General Motors.

The talk about merging with General Motors was pushed aside by GM executives a few months ago.

In other business news, Friedman Foundation reported Indiana has the largest voucher program in the country, with nearly 37,000 young students enrolled.

Enrollment has jumped since 2011. The program offers state funding for low-to middle-income students to attend private schools.

The Institute for Quality Education estimates the same level of growth for the upcoming school year.
