03.16.2015 AFC Daily News Clips – morning edition

Good morning:

Over the weekend, the New Mexico House passed a $5 million tax credit scholarship bill with bipartisan support. In your international news, Graham Brady, a Conservative Member of Parliament in the United Kingdom is promoting vouchers for British school students, http://thetim.es/1wQc2Q5.
And, in the most important news of the day, Tigers Opening Day is only three weeks away! No better way to get fired up for baseball season than a few words from Ernie Harwell.
Thanks,
Matt
