Jack Coons and Steve Sugarman gave a lot of thought to this question when
they first proposed a voucher initiative years ago. They decided to
grandfather existing regulations, but to deny textually that the receipt of
the voucher wld be the basis for the imposition of expanded state
regulations. The text of their initiative is in a book I edited for ND
Press called* Private Schools and the Public Good*. Ed Gaffney

I too am very interested in the possible effect of accepting vouchers on
the ability of the government to regulate private, religious schools. What
is the Steven Gilles article, and how can I find it?
I know that private religious colleges already accept voucher type of
money, as in the "Cal grant" program in California. From my personal
experiences, this did not seem to invite further government regulation.
Would it be different on the primary and secondary levels?
