Important Messages from the Pennsylvania Catholic Conference
As part of Pennsylvania 2017-18 state budget, lawmakers approved a $10 million increase for the expansion of the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. That is great news; however, Governor Wolf has yet to sign the bill into law. In fact, he has threatened to veto the legislation that would provide for the increase.
The Pennsylvania Catholic Conference has sent a letter to the governor urging him to sign the education funding bill into law, noting that this bill would allow for more scholarships for students to attend the school that is best for them.
Your hard work in supporting this effort has helped this important legislation reach the governor's desk. You too can send a letter to Governor Wolf urging him to sign the education funding bill into law today!

Pennsylvania Senators are in a position to vote on legislation that could expand school choice opportunities for students across the Commonwealth.
As it stands, the Senate Education Committee is currently considering a bill known as the Education Savings Account plan.
Senate Bill 2 would help protect the most vulnerable children among us by focusing the savings accounts on the lowest-performing school districts in the state.
You have supported efforts to expand school choice in the past and realize what supporting this effort means to students and their families. NOW is the time to urge Senators to do the same!
