Important Legislation to Help with Tuition:
Governor Cuomo and lawmakers are very close to approving legislation that would generate an additional $150 million in scholarships to help families pay tuition. Unfortunately, lobbyists from the public schools teachers’ unions are vigorously opposing the legislation and are urging lawmakers to fund only public schools. Tuition-paying families need and deserve their fair share.
Without your help, this legislation may not be enacted!
Please take a moment to go to the NYS Catholic Conference website to easily and quickly send a message to the Governor and your elected legislators urging them to enact the Education Investment Tax Credit proposal. Although the message is pre-written, feel free to edit it to reflect your particular needs and concerns. By sending the message, you will also be given the opportunity to stay informed on this and other important efforts to help Catholic schools.

Thank you for doing your part to help get this important legislation enacted.
