DiscoverChristianSchools.com Urges Parents to Contact State Senators and Representatives in PA to Increase Cap on Business Funding of Private Education
Thursday, July 06, 2006
Brookhaven, PA - DiscoverChristianSchools.com urges Pennsylvania parents and concerned citizens to contact their state senators and representatives over the summer and urge them to pass a bill to allow businesses to contribute a greater amount of money in order to support private schools in the state of Pennsylvania.
DiscoverChristianSchool.com's member schools have been very successful in funding tuition assistance via the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program. Throughout the state of Pennsylvania, businesses are eager to support the funding yet cannot do as much as they would like to do because of the cap currently placed on the total allotted by the state for the program.
There is pending legislation to revise the cap by $20 million via HB 2585 SB 1087 (see text of bill below). This legislation is coming up for a vote soon. DiscoverChristianSchools.com urges parents to write to your state legislators asking for this support. Sample letters are provided at www.DiscoverChristianSchools.com.
