Arizona state officials will soon be verifying petitions submitted by a group that opposes Arizona's school voucher program expansion.

Opponents turned in more than 111 thousand signatures last week.

If more than 75 thousand are deemed valid, the new law will remain on hold until the November 2018 election.

Opponents say the voucher expansion takes money away from public schools.

Supporters say it offers more choices for parents.
